As an Advanced Nurse Practitioner (ANP) I am an experienced Registered Nurse who has completed extra training and academic qualifications to be able to examine, assess, make diagnoses, treat, prescribe and make referrals, order tests and X-Rays for patients. This can be for patients who present with undiagnosed or undifferentiated as well as ongoing conditions. As an ANP I have taken on some of the roles that were previously only undertaken by GPs.
