The FNP also supports the triage nurses and other providers within the practice through a process of dual level triage. These sessions are allotted based on clinical need as dictated by the Medical Director.


The FNP is also responsible for providing care management services to high needs patients assigned to the practice. This includes working collaboratively with the Population Health Director and nursing staff to actively manage the health care of patients with complex needs through in-person visits, telephonic encounters and coordination with other service providers.


FNP’s are encouraged to work within the quality improvement structure of the department to take an active role in quality efforts.
