Students in the Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP) program are prepared to manage patients across the lifespan. Clinical rotations will prepare the student to meet the clinical competencies essentials for managing the care of newborns and individuals until the end of life.
The FNP program is a 45-credit program that includes 21 credits of general core and direct care courses that are shared with other graduate nursing programs. In addition, there are 24 credits of FNP specialty courses. The program has 650 clinical practicum hours and 30 laboratory practice hours.
Students accepted into this program are well supported by CRNP clinical faculty and the program director. The FNP curriculum is designed so that FNP students take nurse practitioner practicum courses along with their designated cohort of students. Clinical practicum experiences will be arranged by Dr. Kathy Gray, MSN/NP Program Director and CRNP faculty.
