They are highly qualified and experienced clinicians with a nursing background and are accomplished in advanced practice both clinically and academically. Increasingly, ANPs have become an integral addition to our modern ever changing health service both in primary and secondary care, over the last twenty years in the UK. Well documented evidence reveals that ANPs have proven to be highly effective in delivering safe and competent medical care and have been well received by patients.
