Letters of Intent for the FNPs of Tomorrow

Nurse practitioners now go above and beyond delivering bedside care, with some being able to order tests, prescribe medication and make other important decisions in terms of patient care and policy development – increasingly, they have come to fill many of the roles and perform many of the duties formally done only by the physician.

FNPs are finally getting the recognition they deserve and they are very much in demand. Projections suggest that we will soon see an even greater increase in primary care demand. Thus, becoming a nurse practitioner in family care is one of the best career choices out there. Numerous universities now offer Master’s Degree programs for nurse practitioners with a family care specialization and many if not most of them have online options to fit your location and schedule, allowing you to work at your own pace.
