FMU’s online MSN program makes USN&WR rankings
Francis Marion University’s Master of Science Nursing degree was among the schools included in U.S. News & World Report’s annual ranking of Best Online Master’s Nursing Programs for 2020.
FMU’s program was launched in 2012 to meet a growing need for frontline advanced care practitioners across healthcare. The program began with a MSN Family Nurse Practitioner degree. FMU is set to launch its second specialty, a MSN Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner program this year.
The popular program is built upon FMU’s highly respected Bachelor of Science Nursing degree program, and has produced hundreds of graduates since its launch. The MSN program also paved the way for the development of Doctorate in Nursing Practice program, FMU’s first doctoral-level degree. All are part of FMU’s fast-growing School of Health Sciences, which also encompasses graduate-level programs for physician assistants and in speech-language pathology.
