Nurse practitioner programs are graduate degrees available at the master's or doctorate level. Current RNs can use these programs to become licensed to practice advanced nursing skills in an independent manner. For example, nurse practitioners can act as primary care providers who diagnose and treat patients; they may also complete tasks beyond the scope of duties of the regular RN, such as prescribing medication. Master's and doctoral programs in nurse practitioner training combine classes in the theory of advanced practice nursing with on-site clinical rotations.
