The Department of Nursing offers a Master of Science in Nursing Family Nurse Practitioner.   Our program provides for both baccalaureate and associate degree nurses to earn the MSN FNP degree.  Offered online with residency hours required, the program utilizes a cohort model where students progress through the program with a cohort of their peers.  The FNP program consists of 48 graduate credits and can be completed full-time in two years. The associate degree RN to MSN FNP bridge option includes an additional 9-15 credits.
