The online MSN from the USC Suzanne Dworak-Peck School of Social Work Department of Nursing is the first graduate nursing program in the country to integrate nursing and social work practice. The program prepares family nurse practitioners to treat physical and behavioral health, address social and environmental factors, and lead positive social change.
Become a Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP)
Nursing@USC is designed for RNs who hold a bachelor’s degree and have at least one year of experience. The program prepares FNPs — nurses qualified to deliver many of the same services as physicians — with a focus on integrating the physical, behavioral, social and environmental factors that affect well-being. Graduates are trained to offer holistic care to infants, children, adolescents and adults throughout their lives.
