Interior Health and the University of British Columbia, Okanagan conducted collaborative research to facilitate nurse practitioner (NP) integration. To share the results of the study and to promote knowledge exchange, we have developed 3 short videos that focus on NP integration in primary health care, residential care and acute care. In this video, the role of a NP is described. Perspectives on the role are provided by NPs, physicians, and a patient’s family member. This video can be used to increase awareness and understanding of the NP role for physicians, health care providers, patients, the public, decision-makers, policy-makers, nursing students, and students from other health care professions.
