There has never been a better time to get started on your path to becoming a family nurse practitioner. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics projects the demand for nurse practitioners to grow 40 percent between 2021 and 2031. And with the shortage of primary care physicians on the horizon, FNPs are well-suited to help meet the healthcare needs of our communities.
FNPs provide high-quality, cost-effective care for individuals and families across generations. FNPs emphasize health promotion and disease prevention, assess patients, order and interpret tests, and diagnose and prescribe medications in managing acute and chronic illnesses.
As an independent provider or member of an interdisciplinary team, FNPs practice in a variety of settings including clinics, hospitals, schools, university medical centers, urgent care facilities, and private practices.
The Family Nurse Practitioner curriculum totals 71 credit hours and prepares baccalaureate-degreed registered nurses to deliver acute and chronic healthcare to individuals and families in a variety of settings.
Nurse practitioner ranks #2 on the U.S. News & World Report's 2022 list of Best 100 Jobs.
