“My experience with Regis surpassed all of my expectations. The curriculum was comprehensive, well formulated, had small class sizes promoting relationships among students and faculty that facilitated and supported learning.

What can you do with an MSN FNP degree?
Family nurse practitioners focus on holistic care. From diagnosing, treating, and helping to manage illnesses to counseling and educating patients on preventive care, family nurse practitioners tackle every aspect of medical service in a variety of populations, from newborns to seniors.
Order laboratory tests
Provide health care counseling
Diagnose, treat, manage, and help prevent illnesses
Assist in minor surgical procedures
One benefit to earning an MSN FNP degree is added autonomy. Family nurse practitioners play a major role in understaffed health organizations because they are able to perform many of the same duties as physicians, including interpreting medical histories, conducting physical examinations, and prescribing medication.
Where do family nurse practitioners work?
With a wave of patients newly insured by the Affordable Care Act, rising standards in primary care, and a rapidly aging population, family nurse practitioners are in higher demand than ever. That means FNP degree holders can pursue a wealth of opportunities and take their expertise to a variety of work settings, including:
Privately owned clinics
Home health services
Community health organizations
