Based on a research-backed curriculum, the online post-Master's FNP Certificate at Utica College includes a practicum component, so you learn in a real-world clinical setting. Designed by practitioners with extensive experience in the field, the FNP program engages you with topics like health promotion and primary care, advanced pharmacology, and advanced assessment and diagnostic reasoning.
Prior to commencing the practicum, students in the FNP program will be required to attend a three-day (Friday–Sunday) in-person immersion experience on the Utica College campus.
