Nurse Your Patients With Care

To your patients, you’re more than just a nurse. You’re a hero. And your next big mission is to take your career to the next level, so that you can go above and beyond in delivering patient-centered care. You’ve got this.

As a family nurse practitioner, you’ll provide primary care for a diverse population with a full range of medical needs. NSU’s Master of Science in Nursing with a Family Nurse Practitioner concentration (FNP) will give you the edge you need to become a confident, capable, and caring professional:

  • Take advanced courses on pharmacology, women, and pediatrics.
  • Work with experienced nurse practitioners who bring case studies to life.
  • Practice directly within a specific population in your community with an assigned faculty adviser who will assist you with individualized program advisement.

Nurse practitioners represent the future of nursing. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, job opportunities for FNP’s are growing at much faster rate than the national average. You can make a true difference in the lives of entire communities, while having the choice to work anywhere you’d like and earn more.
