Core MSN NP Courses (currently enrolled students)
The Master's of Science in Nursing Family Nurse Practitioner Concentration is a six semester program that allows the student to continue working full or part time. Classes are a mixture of online, hybrid, and face to face classes. With on-campus classes only one day each week, the student is able to coordinate work schedules and family obligations while attending the program.
The NP curriculum is comprised of core courses that cover research and theoretical considerations of advanced nursing practice, and professional and economic issues associated with today's healthcare environment. The specialty specific courses address the basic and advanced principles and practices of acute care with an emphasis on the Three P's: pathophysiology, physical assessment and pharmacology.
The first summer and fall semesters are identical for MSN NP students whether in the ACNP-AG or the FNP specialty.
All instructors in the clinical courses are practicing nurse practitioners.

However, some Post Master’s Certificate students may require more or less coursework depending upon courses taken.
