Np - What is difference between RN and NP?


An RN is a healthcare provider with a bachelor's or associate's degree who offers basic care to patients but does not have the power to prescribe drugs. Nurse practitioners (NPs) have advanced training and education in patient care and can prescribe medicines. Becoming a nurse practitioner requires more rigorous training than becoming a registered nurse.
