Advanced Nurse Practitioners (ANPs) are nurses who have undertaken a master’s level training in clinical practice. ANPs have authority in patient diagnosis and are trusted to independently assess, diagnose, manage, and prescribe for patients. Emily worked as a practice nurse for 5 years before completing a MSc in advanced practice in 2021.
