Provide family-centered care
Our Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP) track prepares you to address the health concerns of well, at-risk, and chronically ill individuals and their families. You will learn to provide direct care in collaboration with other healthcare professionals.
The FNP track embraces a unique narrative-centered learning environment that actively practices real-world problem solving. We believe the whole family is the identified unit of care, not simply the context for the care of one person.
When you graduate, you’ll find potential employment opportunities in:
- Collaborative clinical practice
- Nurse-managed clinics
- School-based clinics
- Occupational health
- Federally qualified health centers in both urban and rural settings
- Specialty practice community clinics
- Group clinical practice/HMOs
- Urgent/emergency room
This track can be completed through a three-year part-time plan of study, or—if space in the program allows—a two-year, full-time plan of study.
