Family Nurse Practitioner (MS)

A family nurse practitioner meets the healthcare needs of the family by providing primary and specialty care for patients of all ages.

As a student in D'Youville College's master of science FNP program, you will:

  • learn to assess, diagnose and manage common acute and chronic illnesses
  • become skilled in promoting healthy habits and educating patients about disease prevention
  • gain practical experience in women's health, pediatrics and adult settings
  • have the opportunity to work closely with faculty mentors and those from the nursing community
  • take classes on Thursdays and/or Fridays
  • complete the degree program after 40 credit hours
  • be prepared to take the examination for board certification

Career Satisfaction
