About the Program

NEW! On-Campus Clinical Day

To ensure that each student in the online-enabled FNP program demonstrates competence in assessment, differential diagnosis and clinical decision making, a required on-campus day for evaluation of clinical management skills has been added to the program for all students.

The on-campus day will enable students to demonstrate their knowledge in standardized patient scenarios while working directly with nursing faculty in person, and meeting fellow learners. Students will demonstrate competence in developing plans to manage various patient types, be guided through the summative evaluation process and be given guidance on moving from the RN role to one as an independent, advanced-practice nurse.

NEW! Resources for Clinical Requirements

The clinical requirements included in the FNP program are intended to provide students with the experiential learning opportunities to enable them to transition successfully into the role of the nurse practitioner. An essential part of each clinical experience is active, hands-on practice, guided by a licensed and certified preceptor with expertise in the therapeutic management of patients and their families.

Our resources for clinical requirements include clinical objectives and preceptor guidelines.
