Do more than provide care.
Make a commitment.
Growing and aging populations in rural areas nationwide are struggling to receive the care they need, when they need it. According to the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC), physician shortages may total between 46,000 and 90,000 by 2025. The combination of these factors has amplified the need for quality family nurse practitioners.
At Duquesne, we refer to our online MSN Family Nurse Practitioner program as Individual Across the Lifespan. Your degree will prepare you to become a Certified Registered Nurse Practitioner (CRNP), which qualifies you to provide primary care for patients of all ages in a number of different environments.
By becoming a family nurse practitioner, you’re choosing to focus your expertise on families and commit to keeping them healthy throughout their lives — from health promotion and disease prevention to direct care and counseling.
Families around the world need you.
