The FNP’s Role in Primary Care

Family nurse practitioners often work in primary care. Primary care involves providing routine checkups, health promotion, and disease prevention education. Primary care providers also diagnose and treat new symptoms as they arise, and help patients manage both chronic and acute health conditions.

A Family Nurse Practitioner’s Daily Duties

The daily job of an FNP can vary widely, even in primary care. FNPs can provide primary care in physician practices, urgent care centers and even mobile clinics.

In primary care practices, FNPs typically begin their morning routine by reviewing a list of patients with scheduled appointments for the day. Some may accept drop-in patients in addition to scheduled patients as time permits.

Before the patient is seen by the nurse practitioner, they will have their vital signs, height and weight taken. This is typically a medical assistant or nurse responsibility in primary care offices. The FNP will then review the patient’s vital signs, discuss the reason for the patient’s visit, and conduct an assessment.

Assessing Patients

The assessment involves collecting information on the patient’s vital signs and symptoms and assessing each body system as needed. This may include listening to the patient’s breath sounds, heart sounds, or bowel sounds, and checking for tenderness in their abdomen, for example, depending on the patient’s symptoms.

Ordering Tests

The FNP’s assessment helps to determine whether further testing is needed to help them diagnose their patient. Nurse practitioners have the authority to order tests, including X-rays, bloodwork, strep throat or flu swabs, which are common tests in the primary care setting.

Diagnosing and Treating

The patient’s assessment and test results (if needed) are then used by the nurse practitioner to make a diagnosis. After a diagnosis is made, treatments or medications may be prescribed, and the patient will be given education on how to manage their specific health condition.

Well Patient Exams

Patients often see their primary care provider for routine checkups, known as well patient exams. In these cases, the nurse practitioner will still review the patient’s vital signs and perform an assessment. They may ask the patient how their chronic conditions are being managed, how their current therapies or medications are working for them, and if they have any concerns.

FNPs provide their patients with information and education on routine health maintenance tasks, such as routine bloodwork, vaccinations that become necessary as they age and health promotion activities.


After seeing patients, the nurse practitioner documents the patient’s visit, noting their vital signs, the patient’s concerns and symptoms, and the results of their assessments and tests. The FNP also documents any treatments or medications that were prescribed, and informs the patient about any required follow-up. Documentation practices vary by nurse practitioner and workplace. Some practitioners may perform their documentation while speaking with their patients, and some may carry out this step in between patients.
