To continually improve our status as a center of excellence for Midwifery and Nurse Practitioner Education.
Frontier Nursing University is a private, non-profit, non-residential graduate school of nursing offering community-based, distance education programs leading to the Doctor of Nursing Practice degree, the Master of Science in Nursing Degree and/or post-graduate certificates in advanced practice nursing specialties. Our mission is to educate nurses to become competent, entrepreneurial, ethical and compassionate nurse-midwives and nurse practitioners who are leaders in the primary care of women and families with an emphasis on underserved and rural populations while embracing a culture of diversity and inclusion.
This mission is accomplished by:
- Offering a structured off-campus program of nurse-midwifery and nurse practitioner graduate and certificate education to nurses who choose to learn in their community. Preparing nurse-midwives and nurse practitioners to establish and/or manage a practice including innovative methods of providing primary care services.
- Providing commitment and collaboration between FNU’s centralist academic structure and community-based clinical preceptors.
- Contributing to faculty and student development of scholarship in the areas of midwifery and advanced practice nursing education, practice and service.
