The role of nurse practitioner specializing in Family Nursing is offered at the University of South Alabama College of Nursing. The MSN program prepares graduates for certification as an FNP and for doctoral study. Graduates of the program are able to synthesize and apply advanced knowledge, theories, and research to a specialized area of nursing practice and function as leaders in practice to contribute to the advancement of the nursing profession.
A common core of courses are offered online including concepts, theory, research, and issues related to advanced nursing practice. Clinical requirements can usually be completed with preceptors in the students’ home community. Students may be required to return to campus at the end of fall, spring, and summer semesters for a final exam and orientation to the next semester.
For all students enrolled in CMN 569 in the fall, FNP clinical orientation will be online. You will receive an email regarding this clinical orientation. You will have several days to access the orientation content before the fall semester begins. An on-campus intensive session of classes and skills labs will be held and is required for all students enrolled in CMN 569.
