Primary Care

Primary health care is the first level of medicine where patients routinely go for physicals, cancer screening, preventive immunizations and medical procedures or to seek care for minor illnesses and injuries. Primary care nurses require an understanding of normal anatomy and physiology, keen assessment skills, vast knowledge about a variety of diseases and conditions, and ongoing education related to recommended prevention methods and treatment options. Primary care nurses typically work in outpatient settings such as primary care offices or clinics and care for a variety of patients based on the population they serve such as general family medicine, pediatrics, or geriatrics. They see patients through acute illness or help them manage chronic disease.

In this Primary Care library, we’ve assembled resources  to help you provide the best care to the patients you see. Our Pocket Cards are quick references to refer to when you are caring for your patients. Refer to the Guideline Summaries to learn need-to-know information from the latest recommendations.
