The role of the Primary Care Network Advanced Nurse Practitioner

At THC Primary Care, we provide resources to support Primary Care Network leaders and in this shorter article, we share a blog with you, to fill you in on the role of the Primary Care Network Advanced Nurse Practitioner.

Let's jump in!

We are slowly but surely bringing you content and information on all of the roles funded via the Additional Roles Reimbursement Scheme (ARRS).

For the role of the Advanced Nurse Practitioner, we thought we'd do things a little bit differently and signpost our readers to a fellow blogger over at, who has published their own helpful insight into the role of the Advanced Nurse Practitioner.

To read the overview of the Advanced Nurse Practitioner role, please click here.

Their blog covers the following, key areas:

  1. What is an Advanced Nurse Practitioner (ANP)?

  2. How does the role differ from that of a Doctor?

  3. What does the role involve?

  4. What qualifications do you need to become an ANP?

  5. A typical day in the life of an ANP.

  6. What skills do ANPs need?

  7. Salary.

  8. How to become an ANP.

We hope this is helpful.
