Promoting excellence and advocacy in family practice nursing

 

Family practice nurses, also known as primary care nurses, are typically Registered Nurses (RNs) who practice within primary care. Primary care represents an entry point for patients into the healthcare system and focuses on the delivery of health promotion, disease prevention, and disease management services. Family practice nurses function as generalists who provide a broad range of health services, including preventative health screening (e.g. PAP examinations, chronic health conditions), health education (e.g. healthy living, chronic disease self-management), healthcare management and program delivery (e.g. diabetes, hypertension, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease), therapeutic interventions (e.g. wound care, immunizations), and coordination of services to specialists and/or community services. Family practice nurses work in partnership with family physicians and other healthcare providers.
