The Family Nurse Practitioner program integrates theory and practical application through lecture, laboratory, and clinical experiences to address a wide range of primary care needs, order diagnostic tests, apply evidence-based research when caring for the family and manage common acute, chronic health problems of individuals from infancy through late adulthood. The FNP program focuses on developing the knowledge and skills necessary to deliver nursing care to persons of all ages across primary care settings.
