Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: School of Nursing & Health Professions

Students who wish to specialize as Family Nurse Practitioners in addition to their DNP Completion Program may choose to add the Family Nurse Practitioner Certificate to their degree programs. The certificate program qualifies graduates to practice as Family Nurse Practitioners (FNPs). FNPs are prepared to provide patient care in a variety of settings, including homes, hospitals, offices, industry, schools, community agencies, public and private clinics, and private practices. FNPs act both independently and in partnership with other health care professionals, and are focused on health promotion and disease prevention. They are trained to conduct comprehensive health assessments, diagnose and manage acute illnesses (with appropriate referral), and manage chronic conditions.
