In order to meet the needs of prospective nurse-midwives and nurse practitioners who do not want to leave their home communities to obtain the graduate education they desire, didactic coursework is delivered using web-based, distance education courses. Using clinics, hospitals, and preceptors in their own community allows students to get the hands-on clinical experience required. Two-three on-campus sessions are required, including an orientation prior to beginning studies, and intensive skill workshops prior to beginning the clinical practicum.
Each year FNU accepts:
- Eight Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) classes
- Four Associate’s Degree in Nursing (ADN) Bridge classes
- Four post-master’s Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) classes (for certified nurse-midwives and nurse practitioners seeking DNP)
- Academic Programs Overview: Frontier offers a Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) degree, Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) degree and post-master’s certificates leading to education as a certified nurse-midwife (CNM), family nurse practitioner (FNP), and/or a women’s health care nurse practitioner (WHCNP).
