Mirabelle Beck - Head NP
My name is Mirabelle Beck. I am a board-certified family nurse practitioner licensed in New York, Vermont, NJ, and Massachusetts. I am a graduate of the University of Buea, Cameroon in West Africa where I received my bachelor’s degree in nursing science. I continued my education at Russell Sage in Troy, New York where I received a master’s in nursing and post-masters in family health. I am also certified in BLS, PALS, and ACLS.
I enjoy giving back to my community when I am not serving as a nurse practitioner. I am an avid participant of the annual Thanksgiving Equinox Dinner, an event that provides Thanksgiving meals to approximately 10,000 homeless neighbors. In addition, I am a supporter of the Ronald McDonald House as well as food pantries and orphanages in my community, Central America, and West Africa.
As a nurse practitioner, I have the following experience in the healthcare field:
Drug & Alcohol Addiction management | Hospitalist | Emergency Room Provider | Urgent Care Provider | Triage Provider | Post-acute Care Provider | Long-term Care Provider
What is a Nurse Practioner?
Nurse practitioners are masters or doctoral level healthcare professionals with advanced clinical training. Specialization can include primary, long-term, and short-term care. We have experience treating a variety of ailments with emphasis placed on prevention and management of health issues.
Today, nurse practitioners are growing in popularity. Not only do we offer health services, we are also typically involved in policies that ensure professional standards. National certification, clinical evaluations, and ethical standards practices are required to ensure competency. Nurse practitioners provide services in clinics, rural settings, emergency rooms, urgent care, schools, and private practices.
One of the major benefits in seeking a nurse practitioner for care is lower associated healthcare costs. According to the American Association of Nurse Practitioners, counseling and quality care can help mitigate the cost of medical treatment for patients as there are fewer trips to the ER and shorter stays for those who are admitted to the hospital. Further, nurse practitioners offer a way to make up for the shortage of primary care doctors in America.
