Family Practice Nurse Practitioner Information:

A family nurse practitioner is an Advanced Practice Registered Nurse (APRN) who has completed graduate-level education (either a Master's or a Doctoral degree). To become licensed/certified to practice, Nurse Practitioners hold national board certification in an area of specialty (such as family, women's health, pediatrics, adult, acute care, etc.), and are licensed or certified through the state nursing boards rather than medical boards. The core philosophy of the field is individualized care. Nurse practitioners focus on patients' conditions as well as the effects of illness on the lives of the patients and their families.

One should see a family nurse practitioner when seeing a doctor or physician. They generally work in the following places:
Community clinics, health centers and urgent care centers
Health departments
Health maintenance organizations (HMOs)
Home health care agencies
Hospitals and hospital clinics
Hospice care
Nurse practitioner practices/offices
Nursing homes
Nursing schools
Private & public schools, universities and colleges
Physician/private medical practices

Family nurse practitioners treat everything a certified nurse is capable of doing. The treatments range from administering medication, administering IVs, talking vital signs, and assisting during surgical procedures.

One sub specialty is pediatric nursing.
