There are more than 234,000 nurse practitioners (NPs) licensed in the U.S. They are considered the largest group of independently licensed primary care providers.

The nurse practitioner was introduced with the hopes of closing the gaps found in health care services.

The Value of the NP

In the mid-1980’s, research indicated that the NP role was most valuable in providing access to underserved, uninsured, rural, and minority populations (Brown & Draye, 2003).

Becoming an FNP

A Master of Science degree in Nursing affords bachelor’s-prepared registered nurses (RNs) the opportunity to broaden their scope of practice as advanced practice registered nurses (APRNs).

APRNs assess, diagnose, order tests, prescribe medications, and manage patient problems. According to the APRN Consensus Model, certified nurse-midwives (CNMs), certified registered nurse anesthetists (CRNAs), clinical nurse specialists (CNSs), and certified nurse practitioners (CNPs) classify as APRN roles.

Family nurse practitioners (FNPs) are certified nurse practitioners who focus on the family unit and individuals belonging to the family. FNPs provide a diverse range of health care services for patients in all age groups.

FNP Role Description

Primary care services

Health promotion and disease prevention

Diagnose and treat injuries and illness

Manage chronic diseases

Order diagnostic test and interpret results

Perform procedures

Prescribe medications and therapy

The Role of Family Nurse Practitioners

According to the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN), a family nurse practitioner is a clinician who combines clinical expertise in the diagnoses and treatment of health conditions with an emphasis on values-based health management and disease prevention.

FNPs value

FNPs are able to work in a wide range of settings. Employers include private practices, hospitals, urgent care centers, health maintenance organizations (HMOs), long-term care facilities, veterans’ facilities, community clinics, schools, and correctional facilities. FNPs practice in rural, suburban, and urban communities and often provide care for underserved multicultural populations.
