Meet the National Need for Highly Trained Nurse Practitioners

The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) projects 52% growth in job openings for NPs over the 2020-2030 period, which could result in as many as 114,900 new jobs becoming available nationwide.** Herzing’s online FNP program is a population-focused curriculum completed in the primary care setting that aims to produce FNPs who can care for patients across the lifespan, from newborns to the elder years. Our program is designed for busy professionals. Flexible online course schedules let you complete your MSN in as few as 20 months when attending full-time.

Through Herzing's MSN-FNP program you will:

  • Benefit from regional clinical coordinators who serve as a resource in helping you find and secure appropriate clinical sites
  • Have the opportunity to collaborate with nurses from around the country through online coursework
  • Gain assistance from masters-prepared academic coaches who offer one-on-one assistance and coaching to enhance study skills, build confidence, and provide support in helping you achieve academic success.

Your clinical placement is our pledge.

We understand securing clinical placement is one of the biggest concerns MSN students face.  As a Herzing student, we’ll encourage you to find your own preceptor and clinical sites as there are many benefits to doing so. However, we provide extensive support should you find difficulty along the way. With Herzing, you are never on your own.

Because of our strong relationships with healthcare providers across the U.S. and our step-by-step Clinical Guidance Process, we are confident in our ability to help you find clinical placement. So much so that if you are unable to find a clinical site on your own, we pledge to step in and help you secure clinical placement. (Subject to terms and conditions outlined in the enrollment agreement.)
