Family Nurse Practitioner

The goal of the FNP program is to educate advanced practice nurses who can demonstrate critical thinking and decision-making skills in evaluating the health and illness of selected populations. Graduates will manage direct care of individ​uals experiencing acute and chronic health issues across the lifespan. The Master’s of Science in Nursing (MSN) graduate will advance nursing knowledge through inquiry, research utilization, and generation of educational, administrative, or clinical strategies to facilitate changes in professional nursing practice. The graduate program in nursing prepares students to continue study at the Doctoral level.

Students may enter this program one of three ways:
  • Post-MSN certificate for RNs or ARNPs who are not certified as Family Nurse Practitioners
  • MSN degree-seeking student taking the full Family Nurse Practitioner curriculum
  • DNP degree-seeking student adding on Family Nurse Practitioner certification as part of DNP residency courses

​Please look under Master of Science in Nursing for a complete description of the FNP program and the admissions, curriculum and contact information.
