Master of Science in Nursing, Family Nurse Practitioner

Program begins each fall semester

University of Mobile’s School of Nursing in the College of Health Professions offers a faith-based Family Nurse Practitioner program that prepares nurses at the master’s level as advanced practice nurses. The registered nurse will expand their current knowledge and experience to prepare for the role of a manager of care for families, including adults, childbearing women, and children in a variety of primary care settings.

The Family Nurse Practitioner will be prepared to promote the health and education of patients who may be encountered as individuals, groups and/or families. Students will experience an online program with intensives interspersed once each semester, allowing students an opportunity to be face-to-face with faculty and time to network with other nursing professionals. Cutting-edge simulation and technology in the new Center for Excellence in Healthcare Practice will be utilized to develop clinical expertise.
