Nurse Practitioner Program

Stay home, stay safe with Bayshore’s Nurse Practitioner program

When your loved ones need medical support, Bayshore’s Nurse Practitioner (NP) program can help care for their medical needs in the comfort and safety of their own home. By scheduling an appointment with us, an NP will visit their home to provide a clinical assessment of their medical concerns and then develop a personalized plan of care.

Perfect for when your loved one can’t make it to out to an appointment, our NPs can visit them wherever they call home. This helps prevent unnecessary visits to walk-in clinics and hospitals.

Benefits of Our Nurse Practitioner Program

Our NPs come straight to your loved one’s door, relieving them and you of the inconvenience of scheduling and physically attending appointments.

That means:

  • No need for caregivers to take time off to take their loved ones to appointments
  • No long waits to try and fit in to the physician’s schedule
  • No unnecessary trips to a walk-in clinic or hospital.

Bayshore NPs focus on promoting health and preventing disease by providing medical assessments, diagnoses, and treatments. Everything is communicated right back to your family member in their home, keeping them safe, comfortable, and in their own environment.
