The University of Northern British Columbia has announced that it will be doubling available seats in its Master of Science in Nursing: Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP) Program. The expansion will provide nurses with more opportunities to prepare to provide primary and acute care services to people in Northern British Columbia. The program is based primarily online and takes two years of full-time study or three years of part-time study to complete. Students will complete in-person skills development courses at UNBC’s Prince George campus and will complete 753 hours of clinical practicum. The expansion is supported by the Government of British Columbia’s Health Human Resources Strategy.
