The purpose of this DNP track is to prepare family nurse practitioners (FNPs) to become skilled in meeting healthcare needs of individuals and families across the life span. FNPs 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. While this degree track is designed as a BSN-DNP track, those who already hold MSN degrees are welcome to apply for this track if FNP certification is desired. In the past, those individuals possessing MSN degrees would have been directed to make joint application to the FNP Certificate and generic post-MSN DNP tracks; however, the FNP Certificate track previously offered by the School of Nursing is no longer offered. The School of Nursing offers both full- and part-time enrollment in this degree program.
