About

The Ramapo College MSN – Family Nurse Practitioner program is a 47 credit degree, part-time program, with 720 total role practicum hours required.

Overview

 Graduates are prepared to serve in Advanced Practice Nurse Practitioner positions in hospital and independent care settings; and upon program completion, may sit for state licensure and FNP certification of the AANP.

In 2015, according to national doctor recruiting firm Merritt Hawkins, Family Nurse practitioners ranked fifth behind hospitalists who were fourth and physician assistants were in 10thplace, tied on the “in demand” scale with general surgeons. Advanced nurse practitioners are more in demand than several specialties including general surgery, cardiology, urology and neurology.

Also in 2015, The Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), the federal agency focused on improving access to care and strengthening the health care workforce, stated that it is projecting a shortage of 20,400 primary care physicians in 2020, and other experts, too, have projected a large shortfall in the coming years.
