RN to MSN
RN to MSN
New legislation has opened the doors to affordable health care for more than 32 million Americans. This increased patient population, coupled with a shortage of primary care physicians throughout the health care system, has taken the need for Family Nurse Practitioners (FNPs) to an all-time high — and it will only continue to increase.
Becoming an FNP enables you to work independently and expand your practice far beyond the hospital setting — into private practice, nurse-managed clinics, community outreach, or research. FNPs can treat patients across the life span and work in a variety of specialties, including pediatrics, cardiac medicine, internal medicine, and women’s health.
Nursing@Simmons offers an innovative, online Master of Science – Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP) program for experienced Registered Nurses (RNs) who do not currently hold a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree. The RN to MSN program focuses on helping nurses expand their clinical knowledge and gain the skills and credentials they need serve as primary health care providers to patients across the life span.
The RN to MSN program can be completed on either a part-time or full-time basis.
Nursing@Simmons also offers an online Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) – Family Nurse Practitioner program for RNs who already hold a bachelor’s degree.
