With an estimated 803,500 refugees residing in the United States, many NPs will encounter patients who do not speak, read, or understand English. Many of these patients have challenging health issues such as parasitic diseases and chronic or acute diseases not commonly seen in the United States and NPs will need to be prepared for these challenges.
