As a pioneer in graduate nursing and nurse-midwifery education, FNU remains at the forefront of innovation and technology with top-ranked, accredited programs delivered via community-based distance education. Our graduate programs lead to a Master of Science in Nursing (MSN), a Post-Graduate Certificate or a Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP). FNU also offers a Post-Master's DNP for certified nurse-midwives and nurse practitioners who already hold a national certification and want to pursue a DNP.
We hope you will explore what our alumni say about FNU's nurse-midwifery and nurse practitioner education programs and why they followed their passion for becoming certified nurse-midwives and nurse practitioners. Explore graduate stories below.
“The way I think about healthcare has definitely been transformed, and this is a result of going through Frontier’s very objective DNP program. I came out of the program feeling more confident about my ability to contribute positively to any clinical quality improvement initiative.””
