[Infographic] Family Nurse Practitioner: A Supercharged Career Path

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
