The online FNP degree requires the completion of 16 courses and prepares you for FNP certification through the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) or the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners National Certification Board (AANP). Courses are designed to strengthen your nursing skills so you can deliver outstanding patient care, lead nursing teams, help prevent the spread of diseases, and more.
