The program builds on the undergraduate foundation and develops advanced assessment, planning and evidence-based clinical management skills. The program emphasizes clinical competence through theoretical understanding and practical application to primary care practice.

Clinical expertise is acquired through clinical placements in a variety of public, private, and community-based primary care agencies. The ANP student will complete 720 hours of clinical practice in this 39 credit-hour program of study. In addition, the program provides a strong foundation for doctoral study and research.
