About

Provide care across the lifespan as a family nurse practitioner.

Why earn your family nurse practitioner degree online?

Earning a graduate degree takes your delivery of patient care to a new level — a deeper one. Family NPs are more involved with their patients, families and community.

When you really get to know your patients, you discover more about who you are as a nurse practitioner. That’s just one of the many rewarding aspects of becoming an FNP.

Why choose Duquesne for your online MSN‑FNP degree?

Our online BSN to FNP master’s degree is based upon criteria set by the National Organization of Nurse Practitioner Faculty (NONPF). In addition, we employ the Synergy Model for Patient Care, developed by the American Association of Critical-Care Nurses (AACN). The Synergy Model is built around the belief that the needs or characteristics of patients and families influence the nurse’s characteristics or competencies.
