Family Nurse Practitioner Program in New Hampshire - NH
Family nurse practitioners in New Hampshire must meet requirements established by the New Hampshire Board of Nursing. One of these requirements is that all FNPs working in the state must be graduates of one of the numerous family nurse practitioner programs, either online or in a regular campus-based setting in New Hampshire. Schools that offer training for future family nurse practitioners from Nashua, Manchester, Derry Village, East Concord and Concord must be accredited by the New Hampshire Board of Nursing in order for graduates to qualify for ARNP (Advanced Registered Nurse Practitioner) status in the state.
Programs that train family nurse practitioners will offer students a combination of traditional classroom-based learning and clinical field experience. Since graduate schools offer FNP programs, in order to attain entry one must possess a bachelor’s degree and a registered nurse license in the state.
Coursework in family nurse practitioner training programs will focus on health care, diagnosis, treatment and disease prevention all along the lifespan, from birth through old age. Clinical field placements may be available at medical facilities across New Hampshire including Cheshire Medical Center, Catholic Medical Center, Wentworth Douglas Hospital and Concord Hospital; as well as in outpatient clinics, private physician’s practices, schools and industrial settings.
