Chamberlain College of Nursing was nice enough to share their Infographics on being a Family Nurse Practitioner.
As more Americans gain access to healthcare, and fewer physicians are available, family nurse practitioners (FNPs) can play a valuable role in providing families with access to primary care.
What is an FNP?
FNPs work autonomously and as part of a primary-care health team to:
- Manage patients’ overall care
- Diagnose/treat acute and chronic conditions
- Prescribe medications
- Educate patients on disease prevention/health management
