It’s one of the hottest career paths in healthcare. And it starts here.
Our Nurse Practitioner Program is designed for bachelors-prepared nurses who want to care for patients throughout the full spectrum of the healthcare delivery system.

As a Nurse Practitioner you can build your career on your terms.
The career is in demand and the opportunities are seemingly limitless. As a Nurse Practitioner with a concentration in Family Practice or Adult-Gerontology, you can chart your own course for a bright and rewarding future in nursing. Positions in Advanced Practice Nursing, make the Nurse Practitioner the #2 position on The Top 100 Best Jobs according to U.S. News and World Report. That’s not just for healthcare; that includes all industries.
We made our class schedule convenient to help make your degree attainable.
Our 8-semester MSN Nurse Practitioner program is 48 semester hours and will prepare you to provide comprehensive care to your patients. The program itself is “hybrid” in nature with both in-class meetings and an online component. The in-class component will typically meet once a week in the evening to accommodate the working nurse’s schedule. The University will work with students in clinical placement. Clinical hours are completed outside of classroom time.
The program itself features some of the most advanced technologies in healthcare education – including i-human patients – a remarkable new software tool that realistically simulates patient interaction. Our goal is to make sure you’re prepared for every aspect of your career and we use every tool at our disposal to do just that.
