Courses for Non-Matriculating Students
Frontier Nursing University (FNU) offers graduate and continuing education courses for licensed registered nurses. These online courses offer the opportunity to develop new knowledge and skills to expand the scope of clinical practice, to refresh the knowledge and skills of experienced advanced practice nurses, to gain the graduate credits necessary for prescriptive authority, or to become a better preceptor.
Courses are offered four times each year and start at the beginning of each term. Candidates should choose a term when they have the time to devote to the course work. Individuals are allowed to take up to two courses per term and cannot take more than a total of two courses as a non-matriculated student at FNU. Seasoned faculty, who are pioneers in distance education for nurse-midwives and nurse practitioners, developed and teach these courses taking into consideration the unique needs of adult learners.
Non-matriculating students can review the course descriptions in the FNU Course Catalog. Not all current FNU courses are available for non-matriculating students. Courses that are available to non-matriculating students are N400-Physical Assessment and PC702-Epidemiology and Biostatistics. The Course Coordinator can be contacted to request possible approval for other desired course(s). Non matriculated students are required to complete the BT101 course prior to starting non-matriculating course work. All course work is started at the beginning of a term (see FNU Academic Calendar). Students must register and pay for the course(s) 6 weeks prior to the beginning of the term in order to complete the requirements for the Banyan Tree 101 course and obtain the textbook.
