Overview

We offer two tracks to reach your educational and professional goals of becoming a Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP).  You can choose to either complete only the Master of Science in Nursing (MSN)-FNP or continue on to add on the Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP)-Executive Leadership degree as well.

The advantage to Edgewood College’s program structure is that after receiving the MSN-FNP, you can seek certification as a FNP and work in that capacity while continuing on with your doctoral level coursework to also complete the DNP.
