Apply before the priority date to have the opportunity to be in the first round of interviews and have the best chance to secure your seat in the program.
You can still apply after the priority date. If you submit your application by the first of the month, you could be interviewed the last five business days of the same month.
Our program isn't like others you've seen. We focus on a holistic approach to nursing and teach nurse coaching techniques that help you effect real change in the lives of your patients. After graduation, you'll be prepared to sit for the FNP certification exam.
Not only are we teaching you to help your patients, you'll learn about the financial side of healthcare, practice management and leadership.
We care about your health, too. In this program, you'll learn self-care techniques to improve your own resilience and prevent future burnout.
