Program Overview

The focus of the FNP track is to prepare FNP graduates who will provide patient-centered quality care to individuals and families across the lifespan. The FNP role includes preventative healthcare, as well as the assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of acute and chronic illness and preventative health care for individuals and families.

Upon successful completion of the program, graduates are eligible to take the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) Family Nurse Practitioner Certification Exam or the American Association of Nurse Practitioners Certification Program (AANPCP) Exam.
