The primary goal of the Nursing - Family Nurse Practitioner program at Northeastern University is to educate family nurse practitioners who are capable of providing evidence-based, culturally and linguistically competent, ethical primary healthcare to individuals and families in a variety of health care settings. Graduates will become nurse clinicians, educators, scholars, researchers, and lifelong learners.
The program is offered in a hybrid format with all the classes delivered online. Students are required to attend 2 hands-on Clinical Intensive weekends held on campus in Boston. One is scheduled in the first year of classes and the second one is in your last semester of your specialty track. Upon completion of the primary care program, graduates are eligible to sit for all national certification exams in their area of practice.
Work to provide patient care across all life stages as you collaborate with other healthcare professionals. FNPs conduct health assessments and perform diagnostic evaluations while providing preventive care and disease management and treating chronic and acute illnesses. Most can prescribe medications. Employer’s often include physician’s offices, hospitals, and community health centers.
