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.
The need for quality, accessible and comprehensive health care is growing all the time, and one of the most important ways to meet this growing need is through FNP’s.
