A Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP) is a registered nurse (RN) with advanced education and training. Their goal is  to  help  people  be  as  healthy  as  possible.  Family Nurse Practitioners advocate for health promotion and  disease prevention. These professionals teach people ways to stay healthy and treat them for acute illness (e.g.  colds) and chronic diseases (e.g.  diabetes). Family Nurse Practitioners may perform health histories,  physical assessment and examinations, order and interpret diagnostic/laboratory  studies,  diagnose and  treat  common illness and minor injuries, make referrals to specialists, counsel and teach health and nutrition, prescribe/manage medication therapy and provide continued/follow–up and coordinate care for patients at any  stage of development throughout the individuals life span.
