The Family Nurse Practitioner program focuses on the development of advanced practice nurses who are clinically and culturally competent to deliver primary care across the lifespan. Students receive didactic and clinical preparation to assess and treat primary care problems of individuals and families. In addition, didactic content related to the primary care assessment, treatment and referral of clients experiencing addictions and co-occurring mental health problems, organizational and leadership concepts in health care, and epidemiology serve as an important component to the population focused curriculum.
The Post-MS to DNP Program is not designed to educate nurse practitioners in a new specialty area. Applicants must already hold national certification in the specialty area to which they are applying.
This program is officially registered with the New York State Education Department (SED).
Online programs/courses may require students to come to campus on occasion. Time-to-degree and number of credit hours may vary based on full/part time status, degree, track and/or certification option chosen. Time-to-degree is based on calendar year(s). Contact the department for details.
