No. A nurse practitioner must be licensed in each state they want to practice in. In the Southern USA some states allow for one license but allow practice into neighboring states. And each state has their own requirements for nurse practitioners regarding continuing education credits, and their scope of practice.

A professional nurse has completed all coursework required before sitting for the State Boards. A passing score must be obtained on the Boards to become licensed in the State in which the Boards were taken. A professional nurse must also know and adhere to all Nursing Practice Standards.

No, she/he is licensed. A nurse is always a professional occupation.

Professional nurse refers to the individual, where professional nursing refers to the field.

No, that would be outside their scope of practice.

No. That is not a part of their training or scope of practice. They are trained to spot potential problems and know to whom they need to refer, but they themselves cannot be the ones to make a decision on determining which health condition the child may have. That can only be performed by a health professional like a doctor, or sometimes a nurse practitioner.

An advanced practice nurse is an RN (registered nurse) who has completed an MSN (masters degree). There are different types of APRN's (dpending upon your focus of study during master's program). Clinical nurse specialists, nurse anesthetists, nurse practitioners. So, all nurse practitioners are advanced practice nurses, but not all advanced practice nurses are nurse practitioners.

A nurse practitioner is a registered nurse with advanced training that allows for a greater scope of practice than a registered nurse. Nurse practitioners are Master's prepared and can diagnose illnesses and prescribe treatments. A practical nurse (also known as vocational nurse) has one year of technical training to allow the practical nurse to do many of the duties performed by a registered nurse. In contrast with a registered nurse, a practical nurse cannot perform assessments of patients.
