What is an ARNP?

ARNP stands for advanced registered nurse practitioner. This is a registered nurse who has completed graduate level training and received a master’s degree in nursing. They are then required to pass national board certification to become licensed as an ARNP. ARNP’s in dermatology are able to diagnose, treat, perform minor surgical procedures, and provide various cosmetic therapies. In addition to providing clinical care, ARNP’s also focus on health promotion, disease prevention, and patient education.
