FAMILY NURSE PRACTITIONER PROGRAM
The Family Nurse Practitioner Program prepares mission-ready, primary care focused nurse practitioners for all three branches of the Armed Forces and the PHS. The dynamic curriculum includes care of the military member, bedside ultrasonography, battlefield auricular acupuncture, and sexual assault survivor care, in addition to foundational Women’s Health concepts. Our students receive nearly 1700 hours of direct patient care experience in a variety of clinical and operational training situations over the three year program.
Created to answer the Air Force’s need for advanced practice nurses in women's health, The Women’s Healthcare Nurse Practitioner track requires clinical experiences in year three that are unique to women's health. While the program was created for the Air Force, FNP students are welcome to dual track in FNP and WHNP.
