Graduate Programs

The MS program is primarily an online ‘asynchronous’ program, however some courses (i.e. health assessment and FNP specific) require students to attend live sessions either through the computer or on campus.

FNP students in their final year of training come to campus 1-2 times per semester for testing.

The DNP program is primarily an online ‘asynchronous’ program, however some courses require students to attend live sessions through their computer. 3-5 visits are required on the Flagstaff campus during the course of the program.
