Family Nurse Practitioner Track

Family Nurse Practitioner

Family Nurse Practitioners (FNP) are an integral part of healthcare, treating a wide range of patients with acute and chronic illness in a variety of settings.  As experienced nurses, FNPs are especially equipped to bring a comprehensive, whole-person perspective to healthcare.  Courses in this track prepare nurses to assess patients, diagnose problems, and order diagnostic tests and medications.  The on-campus intensive and assessment further enhance these skills, ensuring that graduates are prepared to take their place as a primary care provider.
