Enhance your expertise in theory, research, and advanced nursing practice through academic courses and clinical experiences that take a holistic approach to health and nursing care. ODU's FNP program is one of only 17 programs in the country that is funded to provide a technology supported preceptor infrastructure. You will be taught by ODU faculty who are involved in healthcare nationally, including innovative solutions to improve healthcare to rural areas through telehealth, interprofessional education, and bridges to the Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) program.
An important and unique feature of ODU's FNP program is our collaboration with Eastern Virginia Medical School's Standardized Patient Program, one of the largest in the U.S. with more than 115 standardized patients ages 14 to 84. You will be required travel to ODU for scheduled training and/or testing at certain points in the program.
ODU's Bachelor of Science in Nursing, Master of Science in Nursing, and Doctor of Nursing Practice are accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education. This FNP MSN program is approved by the Virginia Joint Boards of Nursing and Medicine.
Traineeship grants may be available to assist with tuition, dependent on grant funding.
