Welcome to Advanced Practitioners Online (APO), an e-learning and professional networking resource for Advanced Practitioners.  This website is geared towards APs in General Practice settings.


Advanced Practitioners are usually nursing graduates with considerable post registration experience and educated to Masters level. They diagnose disease through comprehensive history taking, physical exams, ordering and interpreting diagnostic tests. They can make referrals and provide appropriate treatment for the patients including prescribing most medications. They can serve as a patient’s primary health care provider, and see patients of all ages depending on their speciality.
