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 provide accessible nurse-midwifery and nurse practitioner education to prepare competent, entrepreneurial, ethical, and compassionate leaders in primary care to serve all individuals with an emphasis on women and families in diverse, rural, and underserved populations.
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.
