In addition to providing direct patient care, many FNPs promote quality health care for individuals and their families through education, research and legislative activities.
FNPs provide care in such settings as clinics, hospitals, retirement communities, schools, the workplace, health maintenance organizations, public health departments and client homes.
Enhancing access to health care is a major goal of the FNP program at Minnesota State Mankato. Many graduates are providing primary care in rural communities, thus increasing access to health care in those communities.
