About

Through a hybrid blend of asynchronous didactic content, synchronous class sessions, and in-person on-campus intensives (OCIs), the online Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP) program from Georgetown University School of Nursing & Health Studies (NHS) prepares advanced practice registered nurses (APRNs) to provide primary care for the whole family in a variety of clinical settings.
