Nurse Practitioner Programs

Family Nurse Practitioner Program

Nurse practitioner students who pursue the family specialty will provide primary health care for patients from infancy through older adulthood, and also provide women’s health care.

In this program, you’ll gain the skills to manage acute and chronic health problems, refer and coordinate care with specialists when needed, and counsel about healthy lifestyles. Family nurse practitioners approach individuals as part of a family system in the context of the community, and are particularly skilled at improving access to high-quality care for medically-underserved populations.

Graduates of the Family Nurse Practitioner program are practicing in community health centers, private practices, school-based health clinics, emergency departments, and urgent care centers. 

Degree Plan

To earn your master’s degree as a family nurse practitioner you’ll complete 55 credits and 672 clinical hours.
