Family nurse practitioners are registered nurses with an advanced degree. They predominantly focus on serving the primary care needs of families, including conducting general examinations, diagnosing conditions, and prescribing medication.

A shortage of primary care doctors has led to family nurse practitioner jobs being in high demand, as they are increasingly being utilized as sole healthcare providers. In fact, they operate similarly to a family doctor in that they work with patients from childhood to adulthood, and, excluding surgery, have the same rights and responsibilities as a doctor.

Currently, family nurse practitioners must work in a facility under physician supervision; however, there has been a big push to grant nurse practitioners professional autonomy. Because of the shortage of family doctors and an increasing patient load, particularly among the baby boom generation, medical demands are intensifying. Family nurse practitioners have the experience and skill set necessary to provide high quality care, and want to be able to run their own practices.

Family nurse practitioner jobs are highly secure. The Bureau of Labor and Statistics predicts nurse practitioner employment to increase 26% by 2020.
