BRISTOL, Tenn., Sept. 1, 2017 – The deadline to apply to King University’s Master
of Science in Nursing (MSN) Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP) or Pediatric Nurse Practitioner
(PNP) programs has been moved up to Oct. 1, 2017. The deadline, previously Nov. 1,
allows accepted students to begin their coursework in Jan. 2018 for the spring semester.
“The change in application deadline provides nurses additional preparation time for
the January start date,” said Mona Salyer, assistant vice president of Enrollment
Management for Graduate & Professional Studies Tri-Cities. “The MSN FNP and PNP programs
provide tremendous opportunities for nurses in our region to achieve their dreams
of not only furthering their education but also continuing to provide excellent health
care to our community as nurse practitioners.”
King’s 20-month MSN FNP and PNP programs are part of the University’s Graduate and
Professional Studies programs (GPS), which offers degree programs for working adults
in convenient locations. “The MSN program is designed with the working nurse in mind,”
said Salyer. “While courses are set at an accelerated pace, students will be able
to achieve their goal of advanced practice nursing and balance work, family, and school.”
The MSN FNP concentration provides graduates with advanced practice role preparation,
knowledge, and diagnostic reasoning skills in the care of children and adults across
all ages within a family framework, while the MSN PNP concentration is focused on
the care of children from birth through young adulthood.
The Family Nurse Practitioner concentration is based out of King’s satellite location
at the Southwest Virginia Higher Education Center in Abingdon, Va. Student’s classes
meet one day per week in Abingdon and include some online coursework. The Pediatric
Nurse Practitioner concentration is based out of King’s Hardin Valley campus located
in Knoxville, Tenn., and offers online courses with one colloquium per semester.
Those applying for either the MSN FNP or PNP program must be licensed nurses with
a bachelor’s degree in nursing. King does not, however, require the GRE for admittance
into the program.
The master's degree in Nursing at King University is accredited by the Commission
on Collegiate Nursing Education (http://www.aacn.nche.edu/ccne-accreditation) and approved by the Tennessee Board of Nursing.
