About Frontier Nursing University

Formerly the Frontier School of Midwifery and Family Nursing, Frontier Nursing University offers distance education programs for nurses who wish to become nurse-midwives and nurse practitioners. FNU's programs meet the needs of students who do not want to leave their home communities to obtain graduate education. Didactic coursework is completed online, while the clinical practicum is completed using clinics, hospitals, and preceptors in the student's own community.

Frontier Nursing University currently offers the following degree programs:

  • Post-Master's Doctor of Nursing Practice
  • Master of Science in Nursing
  • ADN-MSN Bridge

Within the MSN program are three concentrations, including Nurse-Midwifery, Family Nurse Practitioner and Women's Health Nurse Practitioner. The ADN-MSN bridge is a convenient option for students with an associate's degree in nursing who would like to earn a master's degree. This 20-credit curriculum will allow you to continue to the MSN program without first earning a bachelor's degree.

A variety of financial aid opportunities are available at Frontier Nursing University. Institutional scholarships, federal financial aid and external scholarships are the primary options for tuition assistance.

Admissions requirements at Frontier Nursing University vary by program. For the MSN program, you must be a registered nurse with at least a year of work experience. If your undergraduate GPA was at least 3.0, you do not need to take the MAT or GRE.
