NURSE PRACTITIONER ROLES
All of our advanced practice registered nurses have graduated from an appropriate masters program and are certified by a national credentialing organization. While we do not specialize, our family nurse practitioners diagnose and treat a wide array of acute and chronic conditions for all body systems across the life span. In addition, we do preventative care and wellness. We understand that mental health is a top concern at the current time. Family nurse practitioners (FNPs) often are the first to see patients with mental health issues or for primary care. Scope of practice shapes what FNPs can do when diagnosing/treating mental illness. FNP's can diagnose and treat patients with uncomplicated mental illness, such as depression and anxiety. If it is complicated or turns complicated, we refer to the appropriate specialist as we do with all diagnoses. If you have any questions or concerns, just ask us.
