Advanced Practice Registered Nurse Program
Welcome to the Nova Southeastern University, College of Nursing, Masters of Nursing (MSN), advanced practice registered nurse (APRN) program. This program currently only provides preparation for the family nurse practitioner (FNP); the FNP is uniquely trained to provide advanced nursing care for families and individuals, throughout the lifecycle, in primary care settings. The program is based in the West Palm Beach student education center located in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida. The program is presented in hybrid format meaning that some courses are totally on-line while others are presented as a mix of on-line and in-class. The amount of time in-class is dependent on the specific course. All clinical courses require a specified number of hours spent in preceptor-directed patient engagement related to the population focus of the course. Please scroll through the drop down menus under the APRN where the majority of your questions will be answered.
If after reading the information you still have questions, email Terri Taylor, Nursing Coordinator, or call (561) 805-2291.
Thank you for considering the program APRN at Nova Southeastern University.
