A flexible pathway to advanced nursing practice

The Family Nurse Practitioner program prepares you to diagnose and manage common illnesses in primary care for patients of all ages and to assume the responsibility inherent in prescribing medications. After graduation, you’ll be eligible to sit for one of the national family nurse practitioner certification exams.

This track can be completed either part-time or full-time and enables students to significantly expand their current roles as nurse leaders in a multitude of career settings and nursing specialties.

Within two years of completing your MSN, you have the option of seamlessly transitioning into the Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) program without losing any credits or duplicating any coursework.
