Community-based Nurse Practitioners

​Community-based nurse practitioners care for patients with more than one serious chronic condition, doing assessments, ordering tests and treatments and connecting with family doctors and specialists.

These nurses collaborate with hospitals, primary care practitioners and their teams to ensure patients receive seamless, integrated, high-quality care that contributes to positive outcomes in the community.

They also provide clinical oversight within their scope of practice to complex patients when access to primary care is compromised, or unavailable, or when additional intervention is needed in the community to fully support complex patients.
