Family Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner (FPMHNP)

MS students in the Family Nurse Practitioner Program may choose a 2 year or 3 year program of study to complete their degree, depending on their needs.  

The College of Nursing is asking applicants to carefully consider their life and work obligations prior to applying for the full-time (two-year) or part-time (three-year) program of study, as applicants cannot switch between part-time and full-time status. This policy can be appealed for extenuating circumstances only by submitting a request to the Dean of the College of Nursing.

Classes either fully online through Blackboard or meet one evening per week if classroom-based.
