Primary Care Family Nurse Practitioner

The PCFP post-baccalaureate DNP (BSN to DNP) program of study consists of 92 credit hours (including 3Ps – advanced health assessment, advanced pathophysiology, and advanced pharmacology). The PCFNP plan of study is developed, implemented, and will be revised based on the National Organization of Nurse Practitioner Faculties and the AACN DNP Essentials. Students in this program will achieve the SON DNP program outcomes by building on the baccalaureate level comprehensive nursing content and the student’s clinical experience. This program prepares a generalist registered nurse at the graduate level who has the knowledge, skills, and abilities to engage in advanced practice nursing care across the lifespan in community-based settings. In addition, this graduate will have knowledge regarding advanced health assessment, differential diagnoses, disease state management as well as disease prevention and health promotion across the lifespan. The primary teaching-learning practices used in this program are seminars, case studies/discussions, and clinical practicums that focus on the advanced nursing care across the lifespan.
