At Rutgers School of Nursing, we prepare family nurse practitioners to promote, maintain, and restore the health of individuals and families across the continuum — in pediatrics, women’s health, and adult and geriatric health. Students are equipped to practice in a primary care/community-based setting.
Upon graduation, you will be eligible to sit for certification through the American Nurses Credentialing Center or the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners as a family nurse practitioner.
