Family nurse practitioners (FNPs) are trained to work with patients of all ages and backgrounds on anything from health promotion to disease prevention and lifestyle counseling. FNPs often work with patients throughout the course of their life, forming long-term relationships that require compassion and skilled communication.

Some of the most popular workplace settings for family nurse practitioners include:

  • Private Practices
  • School Nursing
  • Rural Clinics
  • Pediatrics

UC ‘s online MSN programs are ranked #10 in U.S. News & World Report’s list of top online nursing programs. As with all Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) programs, the Family Nurse Practitioner master’s degree program (MSN FNP) is accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education. To enroll, applicants must already have a bachelor’s degree in nursing (BSN) from an accredited institution. An additional year of nursing experience is preferred, but not required.

What is MSN Family Nurse Practitioner?

The Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP) program prepares nurses to diagnose and manage common and complex medical conditions across the lifespan, from children to the elderly. The demand for knowledgeable, qualified FNPs grows each year, and they are quickly becoming the health partner of choice for millions of Americans. As clinicians who blend clinical expertise in diagnosing and treating health conditions with an added emphasis on disease prevention and health management, FNPs bring a comprehensive perspective to health care.

Graduates of this program meet the criteria for taking certification exams as Family Nurse Practitioners.

Hear from a Graduate
“I spent 21 years in the Air Force as a critical care nurse. Because I was deployed frequently, I couldn’t go back to school in person, so I chose University of Cincinnati Online. I started my MSN when I was living in South Carolina and completed my clinicals while living in Italy. The program was flexible and was well established online.”
