Frontier Nursing University Faculty, alumni, students, staff and preceptors, along with more than 3,500 other nurses, traveled to Long Beach, CA, for the Association of Women’s Health, Obstetric and Neonatal Nurses (AWHONN) Annual Convention. The event was held from June 13-17, at the Long Beach Convention Center.
Convention attendees had the opportunity to stop by FNU’s booth for information on programs and a chance to win a Nurse Survival Kit. We enjoyed meeting several prospective students who were excited to apply for FNU, mainly because of our nurse-midwifery program!
FNU offers a Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) degree and a Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) degree in Certified Nurse-Midwife, Family Nurse Practitioner and Women’s Health Care Nurse Practitioner specialties. The university is proud to be ranked the #1 Nurse-Midwife program in the nation by U.S. News & World Report.
With FNU’s distance-learning model, students have the unique opportunity to complete coursework online and take part in clinical experience within their own communities. FNU nurse-midwife and nurse practitioner graduates provide primary care to women and families with an emphasis on rural and underserved populations.
FNU programs are for Registered Nurses with a bachelor’s degree in any field, a graduate’s degree in certain nursing specialties or an associate’s degree in nursing. Students with an associate’s degree can enter FNU’s Certified Nurse-Midwife and Family Nurse Practitioner MSN programs without a bachelor’s degree via the ADN Bridge Entry option.
