Advanced nurse practitioners can play an active role in these important visits. This role can include a physical examination as well as collection of details about such factors as nutrition habits, sexual activity, stress, and more. By participating in comprehensive well-woman exams, advanced nurse practitioners can help patients engage in preventative health.
