The Family Nurse Practitioner program prepares advanced practice nurses to provide holistic care to individuals of all ages from newborn babies to older adults, and to address issues associated with women’s health. Students work in all care settings with a focus on delivering patient care management, health promotion, and disease prevention to people with acute and chronic disease. Graduates diagnose, manage, and evaluate the care of patients, except in critical care settings. Students have clinical practice in nearby city and rural clinics, private practices, hospitals, and other settings that employ advanced practice nurses or MDs. The program consists of 50 credit hours in total.
