Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP) graduates are eligible for ANCC or AANP board certification in primary care and can treat patients from birth to death in a wide range of settings. Graduates find employment in private practices, health centers, and out-patient specialty clinics.
The FNP track consists of 600 hours of direct, hands-on patient care in a primary care setting under the supervision of a preceptor. Preceptors include advanced practice registered nurses, physician assistants, and medical doctors or doctors of osteopathy who practice in a primary care setting. The FNP courses are taught on campus by experienced FNP faculty thereby ensuring quality, oversight, and relationships with students and community-based preceptors. A coordinator who is a certified FNP in primary care oversees this APRN specialty track. If you would like to learn more about preceptor opportunities available at IUSON, please contact the track coordinator.
