Do all NP's have to diagnose?


If I decide to go to NP school to become an Adult NP, will I be able to find a job that does not require diagnosing but rather doing physicals, conducting histories, health promotion and prevention, and management of a disease?

Any feedback is appreciated! :-D

How can you manage a disease process if you can't diagnose it properly.

So, you want people to get a diagnosis and then come to you for treatment.

Not sure how to take your question.
