If you’ve completed your BSN and wish to become a Family Nurse Practitioner, this Master of Science in Nursing Program Family Nurse Practitioner (MSN-FNP) track is designed for you.
In this track, you will develop, test, and evaluate ideas relevant to nursing practice, along with critically examining concepts and theories in relation to health issues and nursing research. These skills will help you as you recommend constructive change and systematize ethical, moral, spiritual, and professional concepts into your sphere of influence. As a student in the FNP track, you will be prepared to care for individuals and families in diverse healthcare settings. These settings include clinics, community-based settings, long-term care facilities, and hospitals. Family Nurse Practitioners focus on health promotion and disease prevention and are trained to diagnose and develop treatment plans for acute and chronic diseases. As a student, you will interact with interprofessional colleagues—exploring collaborative best practices. By sharing professional experiences in discussion and writing assignments, you will achieve further development. As a practicing nurse, you’ll appreciate the flexibility and convenience of this online program.
Upon completion of your MSN degree, you have the option to complete a Post-Master's Nursing Education Certificate or a Post-Master's Transformational Leadership Certificate. The Nursing Education certificate would be especially helpful if you are interested in teaching nursing students in the future and would allow for a seamless transition into academia. The Post-Master's Transformational Leadership Certificate track will prepare you to lead change within the healthcare system. Business skills have been integrated into the curriculum to give you a competitive edge and provide a solid foundation for entry into an advanced practice nursing leadership role.
