Frontier Nursing University

Frontier Nursing University (FNU) has been educating nurse-midwives and nurse practitioners for more than 75 years. FNU offers innovative distance education programs that allow registered nurses to become nurse-midwives, family nurse practitioners or women’s health care nurse practitioners, and earn their graduate degrees online.  FNU also offers programs for those already certified as nurse-midwives and nurse practitioners. Entry options are offered for registered nurses with an Associate degree in nursing, a Bachelor's degree in any field or a Master’s degree.  Programs offered include Master of Science in Nursing and Doctor of Nursing Practice degrees as well as Post-Master's Certificates.

FNU’s distance education programs allow you to remain in your community with only one to three brief on-campus sessions during your course of study. These sessions include a three-day initial orientation session and an advanced skill-building session for all MSN and Post-Master’s Certificate students prior to starting the clinical experience. You will complete all coursework online and the clinical experience in your home community. Clinical preceptors are sought within your home area to help you get the hands-on clinical experience required for the nurse-midwifery or nurse practitioner professions.
