Springfield, Sept. 14, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Springfield, Massachusetts –

Online MSN-FNP and Post-Master’s FNP Certificate Programs from AIC Designed to Prepare Students for Nursing Career Advancement


According to the United States Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), nurse practitioners with advanced degrees are one of the most in-demand professions in the country with a 46 percent job growth outlook through 2029, which is much greater than the average of all other occupations. American International College’s (AIC) online MSN-FNP program and online Post-Master’s FNP Certificate are optimal pathways for current RNs to expand their careers to specialize in the primary healthcare field.

Uniquely designed for practising nurses with an active RN license, AIC’s MSN-FNP (for those with a bachelor’s) and Post-Master’s FNP Certificate (for those with an MSN) allow nurses to continue caring for their patients while advancing their education. Both programs are accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE)*.

Coursework is 100% online for these full-time programs, with one course every 7 weeks, allowing completion of the online MSN-FNP in just over two and a half years and the Post-Master’s FNP Certificate online in 2 years. In addition to the online coursework, students will attend one 3-day residency and will have clinical rotations in their community. Students receive consistent advising support throughout the entire program, and clinical placement teams will help secure clinicals so they can focus on their coursework and patient care without the distraction of finding clinical sites on their own.

AIC’s Online FNP programs prepare RNs for advanced practice, including diagnosing, managing health problems, and providing the full spectrum of healthcare services. Topics addressed include policy and politics of healthcare, advanced concepts of health assessment, advanced concepts of pharmacology, and more. Throughout these programs, nurses will learn to stay current with evidence-based care and develop new skills to best serve patients. The programs are designed to develop leaders who will apply research and new knowledge to the design, implementation, and evaluation of innovative nursing practice and/or nursing education.

Students graduate as advanced practice nurses with the comprehension and clinical expertise required to practice as a Family Nurse Practitioner and are prepared to sit for the FNP licensure exam. They will have the ability to broaden their scope of practice and provide holistic care to patients across the lifespan in a variety of settings including outpatient clinics and community health centers.
