Master of Science in Nursing and Post Master’s Certificate- Family Nurse Practitioner program
The Family Nurse Practitioner Track, prepares advanced practice nurses to manage the care of individuals and families across the lifespan. The FNP is the advanced practice nurse generalist and graduates of this track assume responsibility for the provision of healthcare in the areas of health promotion, disease prevention and clinical management of primary care conditions. This program which is completed through full-time study in preceptored clinical settings, provides a flexible, executive-education format in which the theoretical content of all courses is taught in one weekend sessions per month each semester (Saturday through Tuesday). The remainder of each semester is taught using both a face-to-face and web-enhanced pedagogical approach for student/faculty collaboration, faculty presentations, and clarification of theoretical content. All clinical courses are offered as immersion practicum experiences, conducted in faculty approved, in-person, preceptored clinical settings. Students are admitted to this track as a cohort in the Summer, Spring, or Fall semester. The MSN-FNP is designed for nurses holding baccalaureate degrees and the PMC-FNP is for nurses holding master’s degrees in nursing who are interested in completing course requirements leading to a graduate degree (for MSN)/Certificate (for PMC) in nursing. Graduates of this program are eligible to sit for the FNP national certification examinations through the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) to earn the FNP-BC credential, or the American Association of Nurse Practitioners (AANP) to earn the NP-C credential.
The Master of Science in Nursing – Family Nurse Practitioner program is accredited by CCNE (Commission of Collegiate Nursing Education)
