A graduate of the Primary Care Family Nurse Practitioner program will be prepared to care for individuals and families across their lifespan.
The Primary Care Family Nurse Practitioner curriculum includes preventative healthcare, as well as the assessment, diagnosis and treatment of acute and chronic illness and preventative health care for individuals and families. Family nurse practitioners demonstrate a commitment to family-centered care and understand the relevance of the family’s identified community as it relates to the delivery of care.
The MSN degree program is accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education. The Family Nurse Practitioner program is approved by the California Board of Registered Nursing. Successful completion of the Family Nurse Practitioner program satisfies the Board of Registered Nursing requirements for active, licensed RNs to use the title of Nurse Practitioner in California.
