The Emergency Nurse Practitioner specialty coursework prepares certified family, acute care, and adult-gerontology primary care nurse practitioners, either currently working in the emergency or urgent care setting or who desire to make a change and work in the emergency setting. This rigorous program builds upon core nurse practitioner knowledge and experience and provides the education and skill necessary to function as a competent nurse practitioner and leader in the emergency and urgent care settings. This program of study includes a minimum of 300 clinical hours and an extensive procedure lab/seminar. Upon completion, students with FNP certification are eligible to sit for the Emergency Nurse Practitioner Certification Examination. Students with other NP certification desiring to sit for the board will have the opportunity to complete additional coursework to become eligible.
The ENP core courses may have required clinical hours and must be taken in a prescribed sequence. A gap analysis will be conducted to determine individual course requirements.
