At Frontier Nursing University, we believe your “community” is more than your neighbors next door. As an FNU student, your community may include classmates across the country as well as faculty, alumni and supporters around the globe. With our distance education model, you have the opportunity to study in your home community while building a much larger network through FNU.
MORE THAN 8,000 ALUMNI AND 2,000 ENROLLED STUDENTS
Before beginning your coursework, you will meet in Kentucky for an orientation to FNU. Here you will build relationships with your classmates, Frontier faculty and staff, and your advisor. These key relationships will help you throughout your program at FNU and well beyond.
“The Frontier faculty has been great. I couldn’t say enough about them and how much they really show they care about their students…Even being in a university setting, I never had the relationships I have with the professors even though it’s a long distance, distance-based program.”
- Amanda Arlington

MAKING A DIFFERENCE THROUGH DISTANCE EDUCATION
FNU’s distance education model allows us to reach rural and underserved communities nationwide with students in all 50 states. Our online format allows you to complete your coursework within your home community. Through these learning experiences, you will build relationships that can help you complete your coursework and graduate ready to make a difference in your corner of the world.
Your interaction with FNU students, faculty and staff continues throughout your education as you communicate regularly via forums, phone calls, emails and video chat. Here are some of the technology tools we use regularly to stay in touch:
Web Conferences (Big Blue Button)
Banyan Tree Portal
The FNU community you meet as a student doesn’t have an expiration date. Our alumni have a reputation of staying in touch. The people who begin as classmates become friends who help you throughout your career and life, well beyond your time at FNU.
