What is a Family Nurse Practitioner-Certified?
A family nurse practitioner (FNP) is an advanced practice registered nurse (APRN) who specializes in providing family-focused care across the span of their patients’ lifetime, from infants and adolescents, to adults. Family nurse practitioners can provide a broad range of services as a primary care provider, or specialize in areas of care such as diabetes management by earning additional certifications.
Family Nurse Practitioners in particular are trained to work with both children and adults, most often in the context of a family practice or clinical setting. FNPs work with patients on maintaining health and wellness over the long term with a particular focus on preventative care. Many FNPs also choose to work in underserved populations and communities.
