Post Master's Certificate + Doctor of Nursing Practice (PMC+DNP)
Applications are currently being accepted for classes beginning in January 2014.
This program option is designed for applicants who have a Master of Science in Nursing but are not nationally certified as a family nurse practitioner, women’s health care nurse practitioner, or certified nurse-midwife. These students will have an individualized program plan. The plan will include completion of all course work for a post-master's certificate (PMC) that will allow the student to sit for the certification examination as a certified nurse-midwife (CNM), family nurse practitioner (FNP), or a women’s health care nurse practitioner (WHCNP). Students have the option to stop with the Post Master's Certificate or continue seamlessly to complete the Doctor of Nursing Practice curriculum graduating with both a PMC and a DNP degree.
The purpose of the PMC+DNP program at the FNU is to prepare nurse practitioner and nurse-midwife clinicians and leaders who will practice, evaluate and improve primary health care.
The ultimate goal of the program is to improve the health care and the health status of populations with a focus on rural and underserved communities.
Apply for the Post-Master's Certificate plus Doctor of Nursing Practice (PMC+DNP). This option is available after January 1, 2014.
