What is a physician assistant (PA-C)?
A physician assistant (PA) is a medical professional who has graduated from an accredited PA educational program, who is nationally certified and state-licensed to practice medicine in collaboration with a Physician. PAs perform physical examinations, diagnose and treat illnesses, order and interpret lab tests, perform procedures, assist in surgery, provide patient education and counseling and make rounds in hospitals and nursing homes. All 50 states and the District of Columbia allow PAs to practice and prescribe medications.

What is a Nurse Practitioner (NP)?
NPs provide primary and some acute care, and are qualified to meet the majority of patients’ health-care needs. They promote a comprehensive approach to health care and emphasize the overall health and wellness of their patients.NPs are registered nurses (RNs) who are prepared, through advanced education and clinical training, to provide preventive and acute health-care services to individuals of all ages. Today, most NPs complete graduate-level education that leads to a master’s degree. They work independently and collaboratively on the health-care team.NP can practice and prescribed medication in 50 states.
