By | Education, Press Release, Roseman University

The College of Nursing at Roseman University of Health Sciences has expanded its nursing degree offerings with the creation of a Master of Science in Nursing/Family Nurse Practitioner (MSN/FNP) program. The MSN/FNP is a 23-month, full-time asynchronous online program that prepares students to sit for the Advanced Practice Registered Nurse (APRN) certification exam required for licensure. Applications are now being accepted for enrollment in the inaugural class, slated to start in January 2020.

“Roseman University’s new MSN/FNP program is designed specifically for nurses who hold a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) and are ready to fill the growing need for highly skilled advanced practice nurses,” said Brian Oxhorn, BS, MS, PhD, Dean of the College of Nursing. “The program will offer working nurses the opportunity to work full-time, attend class online, the potential to complete clinical hours where they live, and finish their master’s degree in just under two years.”

Roseman University’s MSN/FNP program focuses on preparing nurses to deliver comprehensive healthcare for families and family members across all ages, body systems and diseases and to deliver a range of acute, chronic and preventive healthcare services. In addition to diagnosing and treating illness, MSN/FNP students learn to perform advanced patient care with key job functions that include delivering immunizations, screening and diagnostic testing, prescribing appropriate medications as part of a treatment plan, as well as offering personalized counseling on maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

Roseman University College of Nursing teaches students using its Six-Point Mastery Learning Model, an education system that promotes high levels of achievement, with a focus on mastery of content. A block curriculum allows students to study full-time while maintaining a full-time job as a nurse, and incorporates evidence-based research, theory and practice with local clinical hours.

Information about the Roseman University College of Nursing’s MSN/FNP program can be found online at nursing.roseman.edu. In addition to the new MSN/FNP program, the college offers an on-campus, 18-month Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) and a hybrid, online Accelerated Bachelor of Science in Nursing (ABSN) program that can be completed in 16 to 17 months. Roseman University College of Nursing BSN and ABSN programs are accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN). The College of Nursing intends to pursue initial accreditation for the MSN/FNP program through the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE).
