Family nurse practitioners (FNP) are advanced practice registered nurses who work autonomously or in collaboration with other healthcare professionals to deliver family-focused care. Given the rather broad nature of the family patient population focus, FNPs offer a wide range of healthcare services that revolve around the family unit; from health promotion and disease prevention to direct care and counseling across the lifespan.

Because FNPs possess a graduate-level education, as well as clinical training in family medicine, they are qualified to diagnosis and treat complex health conditions of the body and mind. Their advanced training and education also often qualifies FNPs to serve as hospital and clinic administrators and policy makers.family practitioner posing with family

FNPs may work in a variety of settings, including conventional doctors offices, clinics, private homes, schools, or hospitals. Family nurse practitioners place a strong emphasis on wellness and prevention, but also provide treatment for everything from mild ailments to serious conditions affecting any member of the family, from children to grandparents. An FNP can be expected to perform duties that include:

Developing treatment plans for acute and chronic diseases

Educating and guiding patients on disease prevention and healthy lifestyle habits

Understanding the changes in health promotion throughout the aging process

Conducting exams

Performing diagnostic tests and screening evaluations

Managing overall patient care regarding lifestyle and development issues

Emphasizing preventative care and disease management

Prescribing medications
