The Helene Fuld School of Nursing Graduate Program began in Fall 1999 and has continued a tradition of excellence since that time. The HFSON offers a Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) and a Post Masters Certification Track with a Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP) role concentration. Beginning May 2015, the HFSON will offer a Post Master's Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) program.
The purpose of the FNP Program is to prepare nurses to provide advanced Primary Health Care to underserved populations in an urban setting. Our program of study integrates cultural norms, values, and health practices of underserved and vulnerable populations. Our well-integrated curriculum is the basis for our students emerging as highly qualified Family Nurse Practitioners.
Our graduates provide excellent primary health care that is culturally sensitive. Graduates of our program are prepared to practice as nurse practitioners in a variety of settings. Our graduates are eligible to apply for national certification as a Family Nurse Practitioner.
CSU HFSON are excited about the possibilities our program and faculty offer to nurses seeking an advanced nursing education. Our faculty are committed to providing excellence in nursing education, practice and research. Our School of Nursing is manages the CSU Community Health Center and the Coppin Clinic at St. Frances.
