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.
