Family Nurse Practitioner

The Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) – Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP) program prepares Registered Nurses with the solid knowledge base, comprehension, and clinical expertise required to practice as FNPs.

FNPs have an enhanced level of expertise in their field and assume a greater level of responsibility in their role as primary health care providers. Upon completion of this Nursing@Simmons CCNE-accredited program, you will be eligible to sit for certification as a Family Nurse Practitioner. Simmons is proud of our students’ consistent 100 percent first-time pass rate on certification examinations.

As a Family Nurse Practitioner, you will have the clinical skills and knowledge to:

  • Provide a broad spectrum of care to individuals across the life span while also considering the health context of the family.
  • Assess patients, and order and interpret diagnostic tests.
  • Make diagnoses, and initiate and manage treatment plans, including prescribing medications.
  • Focus on disease prevention and health management,

Due to the shortage of family practice and internal medicine doctors in many states, there are many employment opportunities across the nation for Family Nurse Practitioners.
