Nursing: Nurse Practitioner

Helen and Arthur E. Johnson Beth-El College of Nursing & Health Sciences - Colorado Springs

Format

Online

An online class is delivered 100% electronically using the internet or other computer-based methods. The teaching is conducted from a remote location through an online course learning management system or other online or electronic tools. Students have access to the teacher and classmates synchronously, asynchronously, or both. Online classes typically are term-based, but some may be offered in a self-paced format.

The graduate nursing program builds upon and expands the knowledge, values and skills of the baccalaureate prepared nurse. In addition to specialty courses which prepare for expanded clinical roles in adult/gero health or family health, the student gains experience with research, health care policy, nursing theory, clinical problem solving/critical thinking and creativity. This program will prepare you to work in primary health care settings such as family practice, internal medicine, senior clinics, and college health. This program is not intended to prepare you for emergency room or urgent care settings as these are best suited to preparation via an acute care nurse practitioner program.
