The Nursing - Primary Care Family Nurse Practitioner track at the University of Michigan prepares advanced practice nurses for the current and evolving primary health care system. More specifically, the program focuses on providing students with the skills needed to deliver cutting edge, community-based primary health care to individuals and families across the lifespan.


We place a strong emphasis on health promotion as well as the development of positive health behaviors as they pertain to diverse groups at different developmental and age stages.
