Family nurse practitioners (FNPs) are uniquely skilled primary care providers who work collaboratively to meet the health care needs of diverse individuals and families across the lifespan, in a variety of practice settings. Graduates of Le Moyne’s FNP program are trained as competent and compassionate clinicians who provide excellent community-based primary care to diverse, under-served, and vulnerable populations.
Students who have a bachelor's degree in a field other than nursing and hold a valid NYS RN license are encouraged to take advantage of our FNP Conditional Admission option. Here, you will apply to the FNP program and interview as any other FNP candidate would. If accepted, you will be required to complete some prerequisite coursework. Upon successful completion of those courses you will have earned a spot in the FNP program.
The committee will review your transcripts to see how many prerequisites may be required before you begin the FNP curriculum. There are a maximum of six prerequisites (completed through Le Moyne) required. A personalized assessment of your coursework will be done after the admission interview to assist in your planning. Students may be waived out of certain prerequisites from this list based on their previous college coursework:
