Family Nurse Practitioner

Family nurse practitioners (FNPs) are advanced practice nurses who are competent clinicians focused on managing health conditions and preventing disease for patients across the lifespan. FNPs review medical histories, perform comprehensive and focused physical exams, order diagnostic tests, diagnose and develop individualized treatment plans. FNPs practice in a variety of settings, such as private practice, community health, health care systems, and universities. FNPs can practice independently or in collaboration with a physician, depending on their state’s practice laws.
