The Family Nurse Practitioner Program at the University of Miami leads to a Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) and eligibility to take the FNP specialty certification examination.  Registered nurses with bachelor’s degrees are eligible to apply. 


Certified FNP’s provide a range of healthcare services to individuals and families in a variety of clinical settings.  Such services include health maintenance, disease prevention, assessment, and healthcare management. The Family Nurse Practitioner program offers an excellent educational foundation in advanced practice nursing and substantial clinical experience.  Graduates of the program are prepared to make independent and collaborative decisions, sound clinical judgments, and be leaders in their profession.

The University of Miami is located at the crossroads of the Caribbean and the Americas in tropical Miami-Dade County, Florida. This location provides a unique multicultural environment in which to study and practice. The program benefits from its relationship to the University of Miami’s Leonard M. Miller School of Medicine, a major international academic health center. Clinical instruction is taught by highly skilled faculty in a variety of settings.


The mission of the MSN program is to educate students and support faculty committed to excellence in the art and science of nursing and health care studies through creating and disseminating health knowledge and developing culturally competent leaders to provide safe service to our community, the nation, and the world.
