Where can MSN FNP nurses work?

Considered one of the more flexible focuses, family nurse practitioners who have earned their graduate degrees in nursing can work in hospitals, clinics, private practices, hospice centers, school clinics, home healthcare agencies, and community health centers. They also find themselves in nursing education, academia, administrative roles, and policy‑generating professions.
