The curriculum focuses on culturally sensitive care, incorporating health promotion and management of acute and chronic health problems.

Graduates are prepared to apply nursing theory, principles of advanced practice nursing and the research process in the design and delivery of primary care. Knowledge for advanced nursing practice is synthesized from concepts in nursing, as well as the biological and social sciences. Graduates of the Family Nurse Practitioner program are prepared to take a Family Nurse Practitioner national certification examination.
