The Department of Nursing is transitioning the Family Nurse Practitioner from a Master of Science (M.S.) degree program to a Post-Baccalaureate Doctor of Nursing Practice (D.N.P.) degree program. The final M.S. cohort is scheduled for Spring 2024 with an application deadline of November 30th. The Post-Baccalaureate Doctor of Nursing Practice degree program is tentatively scheduled to start in Fall 2024 pending approval. Students interested in the Family Nurse Practitioner program are encouraged to contact the Department of Nursing for the latest information.
Be the primary care provider for your community. Designed for nurses with bachelor's and master's degrees to elevate to a D.N.P., our post-baccalaureate program offers 100% online coursework with two campus visits that will sharpen your ability to assess patients, order and interpret tests, establish diagnoses and manage treatment plans. Then use that knowledge to provide family-focused acute, chronic and preventive care to patients across the lifespan on a long-term basis.
