The online Primary Care Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP) program option is intended to offer the same rigorous education as the University of Michigan School of Nursing's traditional residential format. The online Primary Care FNP program is designed by faculty along with student input, and consultation with national experts in online learning. Faculty are trained in highly effective and cutting-edge strategies for optimal learning and student engagement. Students admitted to the online FNP program will be required to attend an on-campus orientation and come to campus for three days per term. On-campus sessions will focus on areas that are essential to student success, including skill building and testing, formative learning experiences, summative assessments of student performance and progression throughout the program, access to expert seminar content and connections with faculty and peers.
