Frontier Nursing University fosters a Culture of Caring that is instilled in every member of our community including students, alumni, faculty and staff. As we promote caring together, we exemplify the support, respect and inclusivity we hope to bring to the wider healthcare system. We are amazed as we watch our Frontier community members exemplify this culture of caring as the reach and impact of the COVID-19 pandemic continues to evolve and change everyday life.
Alumni on the Frontlines: The health, safety and well-being of all our community members remains our priority, and we are proud to see our nurse-midwives and nurse practitioners at the frontlines and leading efforts to ensure the health and safety of their own communities across the country. As they are facing unprecedented challenges and opportunities, they are passionately giving their time and energy to serve women and families. Read the amazing stories of FNU nurse-midwives and nurse practitioners and their courage and dedication. We are so grateful for their invaluable service and how they are carrying out the mission of Frontier Nursing University.
How FNU is Adapting During the Pandemic: FNU has redesigned the Frontier Bound orientation session to a virtual, interactive format. All Frontier Bound orientation sessions will be held virtually through September 2020. Newly admitted students will be receiving details about this change via their Frontier.edu email address. Any applicants with questions should contact firstname.lastname@example.org. We are working to also recreate our Clinical Bound on-site sessions to a virtual format.
These are temporary measures while the COVID-19 restrictions are in place. Didactic courses are continuing without interruption at this time. FNU has transitioned all staff who do not need to be on campus to telecommuting from their homes. At FNU, we believe in physical distancing, but we want to continue to actively interact socially with our community during this stressful time while following guidance from the CDC and government to prevent the transmission. We are working in alignment with local, state and national agencies and government to actively and responsibly respond to this public health threat.
As the reach and impact of the COVID-19 virus continues to evolve, the health, safety, and well-being of all our community members remains our priority. Below you will find resources and links to additional information that we hope will be helpful during this time. We plan to add to this list as more resources become available.
