At the Sudbury District Nurse Practitioner Clinics, the primary health care provider is a Nurse Practitioner (NP). A NP is a Registered Nurse with advanced training and skills in the areas of health assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of episodic illnesses as well as the management of chronic diseases. The NP works within a scope of practice set forth by the College of Nurses of Ontario, whereby she/he is authorized to order certain lab and diagnostic tests, order and/or renew certain medications, and diagnose certain illnesses. Anything beyond the NPs’ scope of practice requires consultation with a Physician or other health care professional. Therefore, the NP may make arrangements for you to be seen by a Physician or other health care professional at our clinics should the need arise. Funding from the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care has allowed us to add a Pharmacist, Dietician, Social Worker, and Registered Practical Nurse to our team to enable us to better serve our patients’ health care needs.
Patients are registered to Sudbury District Nurse Practitioner Clinics and not to an individual provider.
While our patients usually see one provider on a regular basis, they may be required to see alternate providers within the Clinic, from time to time.
