The health care system is in a state of flux, and there is a growing demand for highly-skilled nurse practitioners to lead the next wave of primary and secondary care providers.  The Nursing (online) program is offered by Catholic University of America.


The United States is also experiencing a nurse shortage, which means there are more opportunities for nurses than ever before. The Bureau of Labor Statistics expects the total number of job openings for nurses due to growth and replacement to exceed one million by 2022. Graduate-level nurses will fill these gaps and become the next leaders in nursing, and you can be one of them.

Take control of your nursing career and plan your professional future with an online Master's Degree in Nursing with a Family Nurse Practitioner track.
