Welcome to the University of Mount Union's MSN program, where nursing excellence meets specialization. Our graduate nursing program features two unique offerings for advanced nursing roles - our Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP) degree and the Emergency Nurse Practitioner (ENP) certificate. Whether drawn to primary care or the fast-paced realm of emergency healthcare, our program equips you with the skills and expertise to excel in your chosen field. Mount Union allows you to choose the pathway that best suits you. A degree-seeking student can complete an MSN FNP pathway, or choose to complete both their MSN FNP and ENP certificate together. Candidates with a previously earned FNP degree can pursue their ENP independently.
MSN FNP Program
Our MSN FNP degree program allows you to elevate your nursing career to new heights. This pathway opens doors to advanced nursing roles, offering autonomy and the ability to bridge primary care gaps. Our purposefully designed program caters to frontline nurses, providing the flexibility of online learning complemented by hands-on skill development during short intensives guided by our dedicated faculty.
You can earn your MSN FNP degree in as little as 22 months while balancing your commitments with our convenient online, asynchronous format. Short onsite skills intensives allow valuable connections with peers and faculty, preparing you confidently for practicum rotations. With the demand for skilled Family Nurse Practitioners rising, our program positions you to make a tangible difference in people's lives. Learn more about our MSN FNP program.
ENP Certificate Program
Our ENP certification program allows you to step into the forefront of emergency healthcare. Tailored for family nurse practitioners aspiring to specialize in diverse emergency settings, this program hones your skills to provide immediate and comprehensive care to emergency patients. As an ENP, you play a vital role in diagnosing and treating acute symptoms with precision while delivering holistic patient care.
Whether pursued independently with an already earned FNP degree or concurrently with our MSN FNP program, the ENP certification will prepare you to meet the growing need among emergency departments to treat urgent primary care needs, critical illnesses, injuries, or trauma across the lifespan.
