Master of Science: Nursing
Family Nurse Practitioner Emphasis

Applications for Fall 2016 are currently being accepted.

The Masters in Nursing–FNP focus will have a Fall 2016 start rather than Spring 2017.  This change is due to an exciting and innovative change in our current curriculum that we will introduce during orientation should you be admitted to the program.  The School of Nursing admissions committee will be reviewing applications as they are completed in an attempt to provide rolling admissions through August 16th, space permitting.  

Please see below for the application process. Failure to submit all required materials in each of the steps will delay evaluation and screening of your application by the School of Nursing.
