Care for patients — and yourself — with an FNP degree or certification

01.26.2022 | By:

Healthcare is constantly evolving. Texas Wesleyan’s Family Nurse Practitioner programs are training the next generation of nursing leaders to make an impact in this ever-changing field. 

“Texas Wesleyan’s program understands the trajectory in which healthcare is going and they have a program that  caters to that,” said Sabrea Robinson, a Texas Wesleyan Family Nurse Practitioner student. 

Our expert educators will help turn your nursing experience into a meaningful career, no matter what you want to achieve.  

“Some people want to work in rural [areas]. Some people want to work in urban areas. Some people want to work in [a] clinic … You are assisted every inch of the way to meet that career goal,” said Ophelia Abankwah, FNP student, about the expert educators who help tailor students’ learning. 

Choose from one of Texas Wesleyan University’s three FNP degree paths — Master of Science in Nursing – Family Nurse PractitionerDoctor of Nursing Practice – Family Nurse Practitioner or Post-Master's FNP Certificate — and learn how to lead in the care of your patients, your business and yourself. 

You’ll focus on holistic, relationship-centered care for your patients. You’ll also learn how to care for yourself through self-development and self-care techniques to avoid compassion fatigue. 

Want to run your own practice?  Not only will you focus on a holistic approach to nursing, but you’ll learn about the financial side of healthcare, including business literacy and leadership.  

By studying for your FNP certificate, you’ll learn how to treat a diverse group of patients and be prepared to diagnose and prescribe drugs, making you a commodity in the nursing field.
