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.
Telehealth nurse practitioner jobs and nurse practitioner degrees are in high demand and will contribute to the transition from traditional in-person care to virtual care.
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?
To proceed with either the BSN to MSN FNP or the BSN to DNP FNP, you are required to have a bachelor’s degree and hold your RN license.
