Equipped for the Future

  • Prepare to lead as the primary health care provider in a wide variety of settings. Conduct comprehensive health assessments, provide diagnoses, and manage acute and chronic conditions.

  • Clinical/Practicum Hours. FNP students complete approximately 1,000 supervised clinical practice hours.

The emphasis on social justice is a big part of what drew me to USF. You learn not only to be nurse practitioners, but also to be agents of change in health care."
