Learn more about how a family nurse practitioner can serve your health needs with these insights from their experienced team.
Family nurse practitioners are highly trained Advanced Practice Registered Nurses (APRNs) qualified to diagnose and treat both acute and chronic medical conditions. They place a particular emphasis on comprehensive care across age groups, keeping in mind the context of family and community during both preventative care and medical treatment.
As these medical professionals are qualified to be primary care providers, many families benefit from an ongoing relationship with a family nurse practitioner for preventative and general healthcare. A family nurse practitioner can also be a vital part of the at-home care team for recovering patients. They work with families to provide support at home, helping to devise a plan for post-discharge patients and educating family members on how to support individuals as they recover.
At ACCESS Nursing Services, family nurse practitioners focus on transitional care, supporting both patients and their families throughout the recovery process. As soon as they enter the hospital, patients can receive a free care management consultation, which ACCESS Nursing Services uses to design a home healthcare plan that encompasses both medical needs and the patient’s lifestyle. After being discharged from the hospital, your family nurse practitioner will transport you home, discuss care with the family, and, if needed, provide at-home care. The result is a seamless, stress-free transition that supports the healing process.
