M.S. in Nursing - Family Nurse Practitioner (MSN-FNP)

Meet Growing Demand with a Nurse Practitioner Degree

As one of the most rapidly growing healthcare professions in the United States, nurse practitioners are well positioned to conquer challenges associated with growing healthcare needs. As a licensed nurse practitioner with a Master of Science in Nursing, you’ll enjoy increased autonomy and more career options as you work to coordinate healthcare for individuals and families.

Elevate Your Nursing Practice

As student in Franklin University’s Master of Science-Family Nurse Practitioner (MSN-FNP) program, you’ll expand the critical thinking and problem-solving skills necessary to effectively deliver high-quality patient care. You’ll earn your MSN-FNP in 27 months by taking a combination of 6, 12 and 16-week online courses. During your last year in the program, you’ll spend 1 or 2 days per week completing a required on-site clinical experience in an approved healthcare setting.


Earn an MSN Degree Aligned with Your Goals

Prepare to work in a primary care environment managing the health of individuals and families, through an online program that accommodates the demanding schedule of a full-time registered nurse. Upon completion of your coursework and 600 hours of on-site clinical work, you’ll be eligible to sit for the Family Nurse Practitioner certification examinations offered by the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) or the American Association of Nurse Practitioners (AANP). Passing the certification exam is necessary to receive a license to practice as an advanced registered nurse practitioner in most states.
