Master of Science in Nursing

Family Nurse Practitioner Program

If you’re ready to take your nursing career to the next level, IUPUC has a three-year Master of Science in Nursing degree to prepare you to be a Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP). This part-time program includes only two courses per semester to allow you to continue working while attaining your degree.

An FNP is qualified to provide many of the same services as a physician and often works alongside a physician in outpatient settings such as primary care, retail health clinics, student health, public health clinics and outpatient specialty care.
