Uploaded by :

An 8 page research paper that discusses the four metaparadigms of nursing in relation to the family nurse practitioner role. FNPs work with people of all age groups and their families, as they provide the necessary care and information for individuals to make informed decisions concerning their health and lifestyle choices. Across the country, nurse practitioners routinely work in coordination with family physicians, with skill sets that are complementary to each other (Flanagan, 1998). In exploring the role of the FNP, this examination addresses this topic from the standpoint of the four fundamental metaparadigms of nursing. Bibliography lists 8 sources.
