    Taxonomy Code: LN-6000

    Programs staffed by nurse practitioners that provide walk-in preventive health services and treatment for people who have minor ailments such as ear and eye infections, strep throat, allergies, bladder infections or flu. They also administer vaccines and perform routine screenings. The nurse practitioners staffing these clinics have a four-year bachelor's degree in nursing as well as a two-year master's degree. A nurse practitioner is allowed by most states to prescribe medication and perform basic health care functions without direct supervision by a doctor. The clinics offer a low-cost alternative to doctor’s offices and other primary care options, and are often located in busy retail stores and shopping centers. Appointments are not required.
