Family Nurse Practitioner Track
Xavier University prepares baccalaureate and masters prepared registered nurses in the nurse practitioner role with the population focus of family / individual across lifespan. The family nurse practitioner (FNP) will apply family centered primary care including preventive care, diagnosis and treatment, as well as health maintenance and management of chronic illness to individuals across the life span in predominantly ambulatory primary care settings. The FNP track follows an integration of the MSN and nurse practitioner core courses and practicum experiences specific to the preparation of a family nurse practitioner. The course of study will culminate with an immersion practicum in the role of the FNP.
