Why DNP/FNP is right for you!

Family Nurse Practitioners (FNP) are among the most compassionate and devoted providers in all of healthcare. At WesternU, our vision embodies the characteristics of an FNP: caring, respectful, empathetic, and trusting. WesternU has a long humanistic tradition of treating patients as people first, treating students as colleagues, and fostering camaraderie among students.

As a graduate of the DNP/FNP program, you will be an advanced practice registered nurse who can provide a wide range of family-focused health care services to patients of all ages, including infants, adolescents, adults, and seniors. We pride ourselves on preparing nurse practitioners to work with rural, underserved, and vulnerable populations. As a WesternU graduate, you will provide care to patients for injury and illnesses as well as teach people about healthy lifestyle habits and disease prevention.

To Teach, To Heal, Together.
