Master of Science in Nursing - Family Nurse Practitioner
Advance your nursing career as a family nurse practitioner with a holistic approach that emphasizes both care and cure.
Caring for patients and people
As a family nurse practitioner, you’ll become a clinical expert in health promotion and disease prevention. You’ll apply cutting-edge science and manage the health needs of patients in primary care settings. Our program will prepare you with the knowledge and clinical skills you need to assess and manage common acute and chronic illnesses. But at Mount Marty, you’ll learn to not only provide advanced patient care but to also care for your patients with compassion, understanding, and a spirit of service—as part of our Catholic Benedictine values. And clinical experiences in rural and underserved settings mean you’ll be able to provide primary care to those who need it most.
