What is the difference between a Physician and an NP?

Physicians and NPs are similar in that both diagnose, treat and manage acute and chronic diseases, order and interpret labs and diagnostic tests and prescribe medications. Studies have found that NPs do about 80% to 90% of what physicians do. Both professionals practice healing arts but they do so from different perspectives. Physicians and NPs are different in how they are educated and in their philosophical approach to care. Physicians are in school longer and their focus is on the study of disease. Many if not most NPs are already skilled and experienced RNs before going on for advanced education and training in advanced practice. NPs care for patients in all aspects of their lives.
