, WI,
The graduate nursing programs at Edgewood College hold a mission designed to develop nurses into leaders with advanced knowledge, Dominican values, and the ability to contribute to the changing, diverse healthcare environment. Advanced practice roles in nursing require further enhancement of critical reasoning and decision making skills as theory is translated into practice.

About

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.

Courses include:
  •  Clinical Prevention: Assessment & Planning for Aggregates
  •  Theoretical Foundations of Role Development for the Nurse Leader
  • Healthcare Financing and Regulatory Environments
  • Healthcare Systems and Policy
