Overview

An fnp nurse fills a growing demand for primary care providers

An Family Nurse Practitioner nurse who graduates at Walsh University from an online MSN program or FNP Certificate program is increasingly being called upon to fulfill the essential need for primary healthcare. The National Governors Association predicts that by 2019, the number of visits to primary care providers will increase by approximately 15-25 million per year while the American Association for Nurse Practitioners (AANP) notes that less than 14% of physicians are entering primary care practice. Due to the dwindling number of primary care physicians, an FNP nurse is perfectly positioned to help to fill the gap for primary care providers.

With a focus on preventative care, health care policy, health promotion, clinical assessment and management, Walsh University’s MSN-FNP online program can help you prepare to become a confident family nurse practitioner, ready to make a difference in the lives of patients’ and entire communities as a primary care provider. An online MSN program can provide a nurse with the family care skills that healthcare organizations and clinics need.
