Nurse Practitioners Fill Nursing Gap in Rural and Underserved Populations

The Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) program in the Texas A&M College of Nursing allows registered nurses to enrich their practice through further training as an educator or as a family nurse practitioner (FNP) in the MSN-FNP program.

The MSN-FNP program is an online program that enables professional nurses to expand their scope of practice. The program prepares current registered nurses to fulfill the role of a competent, caring practitioner responsible for managing the care of families in the primary care setting. Nurse practitioners in this program work with individuals and families to provide primary health care, promote health and prevent disease.

There is a shortage of nurses in rural and underserved populations across the country, and nurse educators and practitioners serve to fill this gap in primary health care.
