The Benefits of an FNP-C at your Primary Care Physician
An FNP-C (Family Nurse Practitioner Certified by AANP) is a registered nurse with advanced academic and clinical education and experience who are qualified to meet the majority of patients’ health care needs, such as managing most common and many chronic illnesses in the same way you’ve come to expect from any experienced primary care physician. As a leading family practice in Gallatin, TN, we’re proud to be lead by an experienced team of Family Nurse Practitioners.
What are some of the benefits of choosing RightCare for my Primary Care Physician?
Our team of FNP-C’s promote a holistic approach to health care and emphasize the overall health and wellness of their patients.
FNPs provide high-quality, cost-effective care. One study compared the costs of care for two primary care problems and found that the cost of care given by FNPs was 20 percent less than the cost of care given by physicians with a PhD.
FNPs practice in collaboration with a physician, which means that the collaborating physician agrees to accept referrals from the FNP and will be available for consultation as needed.
FNPs are uniquely focused on “caring” for their patients as opposed to “curing.” FNP-Cs combine nursing education and experience with through education in medical care for their specialty area. Our team of FNP’s takes great pride in taking the “whole person” into account, not just the immediate ailment. FNPs provide patient-centered care and they are specifically trained to educate and support individuals and families, helping them change behaviors and make informed, individual choices about their health and their health care.
