Clinical placement requirements are unique for each state. Please see our list of authorized states for the online Master of Science in Nursing - Family Nurse Practitioner (MSN-FNP) and online Doctor of Nursing Practice - Family Nurse Practitioner (DNP-FNP) programs or contact us to determine whether our programs fulfill your state requirements.
A Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) and a Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) are both advanced nursing degrees. In contrast to an MSN, a DNP is a terminal degree, the highest level of education in nursing practice.
You’re a nurse, so you already know how meaningful it is to deliver compassionate, quality care to your patients. If you could continue to care for patients on a more personal level, work autonomously and make more money, would you be interested?
