Master of Science Degree (MSN) - Nurse Practitioner Programs
The Nurse Practitioner program prepares registered nurses to become advanced practice nurses in a primary care setting, teaching students how to perform physical exams, diagnose and treat common acute illnesses and injuries, order and interpret lab services and X-rays, and prescribe pharmacologic therapy and nonpharmacologic interventions. Enrollees can choose to pursue the pediatric, or adult gerontology track. Upon completion of the Nurse Practitioner Program, graduates are eligible to take the adult or pediatric national board certification exam to become certified NPs. Since most students are working professionals, the program offers evening classes and part-time enrollment options.
