Family Nurse Practitioner (MS)

The Master of Science in Nursing program prepares practicing nurses for advanced practice roles as family nurse practitioners.

What You’ll Learn

Our 42-credit program combines online coursework with in-person sessions (up to three Fridays and Saturdays per semester) to train students as primary care providers within their community. Full-time and part-time program options are available.

The graduate program builds on the fundamental principles of nursing to ensure the provision of high quality care. Students learn critical assessment, diagnosis, and treatment skills and are mentored in the application of these skills throughout their clinical rotations.

We also offer a Certificate of Advanced Study, designed for nurse practitioners who are currently not a Family Nurse Practitioner as well as the  Adult Gerontology Primary Care Nurse Practitioner designed for nurse practitioners who care only for adolescents through adults.
