The Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP) program prepares graduates as primary care providers within the expanded scope of advanced nursing practice. Students acquire the clinical and experiential knowledge that serves as the foundation for competency in advanced nursing practice. The program provides students with a broad range of clinical experiences designed to prepare students to work in diverse health care settings. Christian moral and ethical principles serve as the guide for care-giving, communication, collaboration, and decision making as a nurse practitioner.
Upon graduation, FNP graduates are eligible to sit for the certification examinations offered by both the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) and the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners (AANP). The 60-hour advanced pharmacology course exceeds the minimum required for prescriptive authority in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
The program of study leading to the MSN/FNP degree is structured upon the following components:
Total Credit Hours: 47
Clinical Laboratory Hours: 75
Clinical Practicum Hours: 675
