The Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP) concentration prepares graduates to provide comprehensive primary care to patients, across a broad range of health care settings, especially underserved and disadvantaged patients, and those of diverse ethnicity. The FNP curriculum includes 51 credit hours and 672 practicum hours. Full-time students complete the curriculum in two years, while the part-time students complete the curriculum in three years.
FNP graduates are eligible to sit for the American Association of Nurse Practitioners (AANP) or American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) National Family Nurse Practitioner Certification exam.
* FNP will only accept applications into the program for Fall semester.
