They are not the same thing. Though some do types of therapy, Nurse practioners typically are employed with the idea of prescribing medication or being medical extenders, whether it be of the psychiatrist or other physician. Psychologists are doing therapy and/or psychological testing; they are not prescribing and are not physicians.
