Advanced Practice Providers
Advanced Practice Providers (APPs) are health care professionals who have undergone specialized education, training, and certification to provide health care services including diagnosis and treatment. APPs include physician assistants (PAs), nurse practitioners (NPs), clinical nurse specialists (CNSs), certified registered nurse anesthetists (CRNAs), and certified nurse midwives (CNMs). APPs can work both in the inpatient and outpatient setting as well as in procedural areas. APPs are an integral part of the multidisciplinary health care team at Stanford Health Care.
