Physician Assistants, Nurse Practitioners
and South Point Family Practice

Physician Assistants (PA’s) and Family Nurse Practitioners (NP’s) are skilled members of our health care team. They should not be confused with our nursing staff that assist them and the physician with patients.

A Physician Assistant’s (PA) education is similar to that of a medical student although shorter in length. PA’s are educated at medical programs located primary in university schools of medicine. PA’s

that have graduated an accredited program and passed the National Certifying Examination may use the credential "Physician Assistant-Certified" (PA-C)

A Nurse Practitioner (NP) is a registered nurse who has completed specific advanced nursing education and training in the diagnosis and management of medical conditions. All states require national board certification for nurse practitioners before they are permitted to practice. After passing this exam they are allowed to use the credential "Board Certified" (BC)

PA’s and FNP’s are formally trained to provide diagnostic, therapeutic and preventive health care services, as delegated by a physician.  They take medical histories, examine patients, order and interpret laboratory test and x-rays, make diagnoses and carry out therapy.  They treat minor injuries by suturing and splinting. They record their own progress notes, and instruct, counsel, and prescribe medication for patients.

Their education includes classroom instruction in biochemistry, nutrition, human anatomy, physiology, microbiology, clinical medicine, clinical pharmacology, home health care, disease prevention and medical ethics.
