Over many years, the nursing field has advanced as a profession. Its foundation in evidence-based care began two centuries ago in Italy during the Crimean War with Florence Nightingale, a nurse who took note that cleanliness and hygiene helped prevent infection.
Family nurse practitioners (FNPs), advanced practice nurses who hold at least a Master of Science in Nursing, are helping to increase access to primary health care around the nation.
Family nurse practitioners work at the forefront of primary nursing care. Specialized FNP post-master’s knowledge can help enhance your nursing practice and expand your career in a specialty that is overwhelmingly in demand.
