A graduate nursing student listening in classThank you for your interest in the Family and Community Nurse Practitioner Program at Husson University. Our graduates are among the finest practicing nurses in New England and their decision to attend our program demonstrates their desire to obtain the finest possible nurse practitioner education. Here are some of the factors that make this program so successful:

Professional Faculty

All faculty members who teach the clinical courses have an active practice where they work several hours a week. This reflects our philosophy that the best teachers are those who are practicing the profession.

Exceedingly High Success Rate

The Graduate Nursing Program is exceedingly proud of our FCNP graduates who have earned a National Board pass rate of 100%, compared to the national pass rate of ~86!

Convenient Classes

  • All courses in the FCNP Program are “hybrid” in nature.  Most courses meet once monthly for 4-6 hours, with a significant amount of on-line content.
  • Live outside the Bangor area?  No problem!  Husson University supports campuses in Westbrook and Presque Isle, as well as having the ability to utilize interactive video and web-based classroom sites.


Our CCNE-accredited graduate nurse practitioner program leads to either a Master of Science degree in Nursing (48 credit hours) or a Post-Master’s Certificate.  Students enrolled in the program will complete more than 650 internship hours.

If you would like further information or wish to discuss the program, please contact Jeanne Harvey. She can make arrangements for a visit or telephone call, whichever meets your needs. Again, thank you for your interest and we hope you will continue to consider Husson.
