Partnerships between Northern Health, Ministry of Health, First Nations Health Authority, municipal governments and communities across northern B.C. have helped recruit seven new nurse practitioners to the Northern Health region, which First Nations Health Authority’s chief nursing officer, Becky Palmer, says will help increase access to primary care.“Nurse practitioners offer a scope of practice that make them an extremely valued asset for rural and remote First Nations communities, as well as citizens accessing services in the urban setting,” Palmer said.“We have heard from our clinicians and other partners working in First Nations communities, that nurse practitioners are an important contributor to enhancing care for First Nations.”Nurse practitioners are registered nurses with a graduate level nursing degree in advanced practice.Advertisement They are qualified to see patients for acute issues like a cold or injury, follow patients with chronic health issues like diabetes or high blood pressure, provide prenatal care, do check-ups and physical exams, and prescribe medications.
