Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP)

FNP Nursing Program

Advanced Practice

Class of 2016 100% pass rate on AANP certification exam.

The FNP major prepares the graduate to assume a role as an advanced practice nurse. The coursework prepares the student to sit for a national certification exam from either the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) or the American Academy of Nurse Practitioner Certification Program (AANPCP) to become a family nurse practitioner (Otterbein has consistently achieved an exceptional FNP pass rate).

Our curriculum is designed with a core online component, and a science core comprised of advanced health assessment, advanced pharmacology and advanced pathophysiology. We value offering you the opportunity to practice advanced assessment and procedures/skills in our oncampus lab. The clinical component is comprised of courses in wellness, acute/common illnesses, complex/chronic illnesses for adult, women and child populations. Clinical courses (600 clinical hours) are precepted by a nurse practitioner or physician in your community arranged by the student in collaboration with nursing faculty.
