Family Nurse Practitioner
As an FNP you'll be able to act as a primary care physician for patients across their lifespan. Our program prepares you through 750 required clinical hours broken up over the course of the program. You'll gain clinical experience with teens and adults, women’s health, and pediatrics. You may also choose to allocate 100 hours to a specialty.
Adult-Gerontology Nurse Practitioner
AGNPs are certified to work with patients aged 13 and above. Similar to our FNP track, you'll be required to complete 750 clinical hours, but instead of pediatric clinical hours - you'll have clinical hours dedicated to long-term care/senior rehabilitation care.
Board certification exams
Upon completion of the MSN program, you will need to pass either the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners (AANP) or American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) board certification examination to gain certification and practice as a nurse practitioner. Concordia students consistently score higher than the national average on the AANP and ANCC board certification exams.
