Family Nurse Practitioners (FNPs) play an integral role in providing patients with safe, effective, and individualized care. As an FNP, you’ll meet the diverse healthcare needs of your community by combining your advanced nursing skills with your passion for helping others. You’ll study the factors that impact patient care plans and develop the skills to treat individuals of all ages and demographics — including pediatric, adult, and geriatric patients. FNPs are often the first line of defense in day-to-day health maintenance, as they often find rewarding careers in settings such as community health centers and primary care medical offices.

As a psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner (PMHNP), you’ll implement strategies to improve the wellbeing of your community and educate the public on the importance of comprehensive mental health care. You’ll learn to promote healthy lifestyle choices and teach your patients how to positively manage stress, all while diagnosing patients, developing individualized treatment plans, and prescribing medications to improve your patients’ quality of life. In a society that often underestimates the significance of proper mental health care, you will become an advocate for individuals who need support.

That’s why we’ve designed our APRN programs to be completed entirely online, aside from Orientation, Immersion Weekends I and II, and clinical practices.
