|English term or phrase: California Board of Registered Nursing|
|Nurse Practitioner (NP) is a registered nurse who, through advanced studies, has attained a higher level of skill/knowledge, allowing for independent decision-making with regard to the health care needs of individuals, families, and groups. NPs function cooperatively with physicians and other health care providers in consultation, collaboration, referral and use of standardized procedures. The California Board of Registered Nursing certifies NPs to practice.|

This is how I translated it recently.
Registered Nurse (higher level, more studies, dipoloma, associate degree, bachelor degree or doctorate) vs Licensed Practical Nurse (1 or 2 years of study, more technical).
There are all kinds of specialties that RN's study further for.
The State Boards of Nursing license the nurses, set standards for practice and discipline nurse who violate the standards.
I myself am a Registered Nurse.
