Online Master of Science in Nursing–Family Nurse Practitioner (MSN-FNP)

Provide Holistic Care to Patients of All Ages as an FNP

If you’re a hard-working nurse who is ready to practice with more autonomy, enjoy greater personal fulfillment, and pursue a more traditional work schedule with a higher salary, Rockhurst University’s online Master of Science in Nursing–Family Nurse Practitioner (MSN-FNP) program can help get you to your goal.

Delivered by Saint Luke’s™ College of Nursing and Health Sciences, our online FNP program can be taken on a full- or part-time basis, depending on your personal and professional responsibilities. With an FNP certification, you will build clinical competencies specific to pediatric, adolescent, adult, and older adult populations, including common women’s and children’s health and mental disorders. Family nurse practitioners care for patients of all ages across the life span by promoting healthy habits to prevent disease, managing chronic health conditions, and developing long-term health maintenance plans. 

Guided by Jesuit values, Rockhurst University prepares advanced practice nurses to care for the needs of the whole person through rigorous academics, rich and varied clinical experiences, and a spirit of inquiry and reflection.
