Mayor Rick Danner signed a proclamation today declaring Nov. 13-19 as Nurse Practitioners Week in the City of Greer. 

Nurse practitioners offer high quality, cost-effective, patient-centered services needed to help solve the increasing demand for healthcare in the United States. They are licensed, expert clinicians with advanced training who provide primary, acute and specialty healthcare services. 

Nurse practitioners work as a partner with their patients, helping them make educated healthcare decisions and healthy lifestyle choices. 

The American Academy of Nurse Practitioners (AANP) is the oldest and largest national professional organization for nurse practitioners (NPs) of all specialties. AANP represents the interests of approximately 148,000 nurse practitioners in the country and advocates for the active role of NPs as providers of high quality, cost-effective, comprehensive, patient-centered and personalized healthcare.
