    Doctor of Nursing Practice, Family Nurse Practitioner

    The purpose of this BSN-DNP program is to prepare family care nurse practitioners to become skilled in meeting healthcare needs of individuals and families across the life span. Family nurse practitioners concern their practice with the treatment of common, uncomplicated problems and the prevention of disease and disability. Program graduates will be eligible to take the Family Nurse Practitioner certification examinations. Graduates will also be eligible for licensure as Advanced Registered Nurse Practitioners by the Florida Board of Nursing.

    Those who already hold MSN degrees should go to the post-MSN DNP and/or FNP Certificate webpages if interested in becoming a Family Nurse Practitioner.  

    The School of Nursing offers both full- and part-time enrollment in this degree program.
