Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP)

A Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP) can offer a patient more in-depth and comprehensive care compared to a registered nurse. FNPs offer primary care for patients at all life stages, making FNPs unique amongst all other nurse practitioners and can work in almost any type of healthcare facility.  They work to prioritize preventative care and treat and manage chronic severe, and acute illnesses in a wide variety of patient populations, allowing them to build genuine and trusting relationships with their clients and client's families.

As an FNP, your education can open the door to new and different opportunities, allowing you to give more advanced care to your patients. 

Upon graduation, students will meet the requirements to sit for either the American Association of Nurse Practitioners (AANP) board examination or the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) board examination.
