The role of the Adult-Gerontology Nurse Practitioner (AGNP) is to assess, diagnose and plan for the health needs of all adults, from young adults to seniors. Many AGNPs work in long-term care settings, hospital-based clinics and private practices, which may require them to obtain medical histories, perform physical examinations, order screening tests, interpret diagnostic tests and administer age-appropriate pharmacological and non-pharmacological therapies. AGNPs may also manage transitions between care settings, provide patient and caregiver education and evaluate caregiver competence. When providing care, AGNPs consider the environmental, occupational, social and economic background of patients.

What is Family Medicine?
from the American Academy of Family Physicians

Unlike other specialties that are limited to a particular organ or disease, family physicians are the only specialists qualified to treat most ailments and provide comprehensive health care for people of all ages — from newborns to seniors. This looks like:

  • Caring for patients regardless of age or health condition, sustaining an enduring and trusting relationship

  • Understanding community-level factors and social determinants of health

  • Serving as a patient's first contact for health concerns

  • Navigating the health care system with patients, including specialist and hospital care coordination and follow-up

  • Using data and technology to coordinate services and enhance care

  • Considering the impact of health on a patient’s family

The role of a Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner (PMHNP) is to assess, diagnose, and treat the mental health needs of patients. Many PMHNPs provide therapy and prescribe medications for patients who have mental health disorders or substance abuse problems. PMHNPs may also provide physical and psychosocial assessments, emergency psychiatric care and treatment effectiveness evaluations.
