A popular advanced practice nursing career choice, the family nurse practitioner (FNP) is a valuable member of the healthcare team. As they are the lifelong medical point-of-contact for many families, FNPs enjoy lasting relationships with many of their patients. Luckily, there are many family nurse practitioner programs throughout the country to prepare nurses for this rewarding career.

Choosing a Family Nurse Practitioner Program

In order to choose a great family nurse practitioner program, prospective students should consider the following:

Accreditation

The Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) and the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN) are two nationally recognized accrediting bodies that students can look for when researching FNP programs. Local and regional accreditations may also be available. These accreditations ensure that the program is held to high standards.

Program Cost

As most post-baccalaureate programs list their tuition cost by credit, family nurse practitioner programs can cost anywhere from $600 to well over $1,000 per credit hour, depending on location and degree-level chosen. Overall, doctoral FNP programs tend to be more expensive, as they require more credits. Keep in mind that tuition cost often doesn't cover additional expenses including mandatory fees, course materials, and more.

Program Length

For those interested in the Master's of Science in Nursing (MSN) route for their FNP education, approximately 48 credits are required. Part-time and full-time study options are typically available, and students can finish the program in 2-3 years. For Doctor of Nursing Practice pathways, roughly 68 credits are required, and students generally finish within 4 years of study. Both degree options also require that a certain number of clinical hours be completed.

Internship/Externship Opportunities

Due to the clinical rotation requirements of both FNP - MSN and DNP family nurse practitioner programs, many schools have relationships with local hospitals and medical centers where students can complete their hands-on training. Prospective students can ask for a list of facilities that have affiliations with their school of choice.

Online/Campus Options

With today's busy lifestyles, both online and campus-based FNP programs are usually options. Some schools even offer a "hybrid" program, allowing students to take many courses online but also offering classroom-based lectures and labs.

Family Nurse Practitioner Degree Levels Offered

There are two ways a student can enter the FNP specialty: via an MSN or a DNP. Both programs offer excellent opportunities for nurses to advance, though the DNP program is a bit more in-depth. Students should consider which pathway is for them before applying to programs.

MSN - FNP Programs

The master's-level family nurse practitioner program is readily available in many schools. Students enrolled in the program will take a mix of general advanced nursing courses along with specialized classes, such as Advanced Practice Nursing in Family Practice Patients Synthesis, Advanced Practice Nursing Care in Older Adult Patients, and Advanced Practice Nursing: Pediatric Primary Care Essentials. As an example, Duke University offers an MSN Family Nurse Practitioner program that prepares nurses for clinical family practice.

FNP - DNP Programs

Doctoral programs are also available for the FNP specialty. These programs go beyond a master's-level program to prepare nurses for the highest roles as FNPs. With an emphasis on leadership, DNP family nurse practitioner programs offer classes such as Population Health for DNPs, Interprofessional Collaboration in Healthcare Teams, and Advanced Primary Care. The University of Arizona is an example of a school that offers a Family Nurse Practitioner DNP program.

Online Family Nurse Practitioner Programs

Online FNP-MSN programs have gained traction in the last few years, as demand for distance-learning has grown. Busy nurses who previously thought they didn't have time for higher education can now complete coursework from the comfort of their homes. Keep in mind, however, that some programs may require a few campus trips, and that clinical hours must be completed in person.

Advantages of an Online Program

For sheer convenience alone, online programs are wildly popular. Students with hectic schedules and family obligations can move through the coursework when and where they choose. For those who don't live near a college or university, online programs allow them the option to gain the education they need without having to relocate. Online programs also eliminate the cost of commuting for many students, thereby making them less expensive overall. Many students find the increased flexibility a big draw for distance-based FNP programs.

Program Accreditation

As with campus-based FNP programs, accreditation is extremely important for online programs. Students should look for ACEN or CCNE accredited programs when researching distance-based FNP programs.

Costs and Length

Online FNP programs will require the same amount of credits as their classroom-based counterparts will, although length is more variable with this option due to increased flexibility with courses. Those wanting to finish quickly, or who may need extra time, are encouraged to consider online FNP programs. Cost also rivals campus-based programs, though online students have the benefit of eliminating "on-campus" costs such as parking passes. Simmons College, for example, charges $1,345 per credit hour for their online MSN Family Nurse Practitioner program.

What Are the Admissions and Certification Requirements?

Admissions requirements for most FNP programs include:

  • BSN or MSN from an accredited college or university
  • Current U.S. RN license
  • Current resume
  • One to two-page personal statement
  • Two or three letters of recommendation
  • Personal statement/essay
  • Undergraduate GPA of at least 3.0

FNP certification can be obtained via examination through the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners Certification Board, or through the American Nurses Credentialing Center. Eligibility requirements generally include:

  • Must hold a current, active RN license
  • Must hold a master's, post-graduate, or doctorate degree from an accredited FNP program
