We provide high quality health care where people live and work.

Our Healthcare Providers

The best health care comes from clinicians that are thoughtful, caring and, above all, qualified. MinuteClinic hires only the most qualified clinicians. Our masters-prepared nurse practitioners and physician assistants possess the licenses, certifications and clinical experience to ensure effective treatment.

Nurse Practitioners

Nurse practitioners are registered nurses with advanced training, experience and education.  They do many of the things your doctor can, including prescribing medicine, treating common illnesses and administering vaccinations and physical examinations.

To become a nurse practitioner, a qualified registered nurse must also complete an accredited master of science in nursing (MSN) program. After completing this intensive, two-year program, candidates must then pass an exhaustive national certification exam. Even after achieving certification, nurse practitioners must demonstrate continuing education and practice (as regulated by the national certification organization) to maintain their status.

Physician Assistants

Physician assistants are health care professionals licensed to practice medicine under a collaborative agreement with physicians. They do many of the things your doctor can, including prescribing medicine, treating common illnesses and administering vaccinations and physical examinations.

Physician assistants train in intensive programs that follow the medical model. These programs are accredited by the Accreditation Review Commission on Education for the Physician Assistant (ARC-PA).

To receive national certification, graduates of physician assistant programs take an exam developed by the National Commission on Certification of Physician Assistants and the National Board of Medical Examiners. What’s more, physician assistants must participate in a rigorous continuing medical education and recertification process. 

Both nurse practitioners and physician assistants are qualified to:

  • Diagnose and treat common illnesses and injuries.
  • Administer vaccinations, screenings and physicals
  • Prescribe medication.
  • Obtain medical histories.
  • Perform physical assessments and examinations.
  • Perform and interpret diagnostic and laboratory studies.
  • Counsel and teach health and nutrition.
  • Screen and refer patients to specialists and other health care providers.
  • Provide education and recommendations.
