Diagnose. Treat. Make a Difference.

Today’s changing—and growing—healthcare system means the need for nurses has never been higher.

We’ve partnered with Clarion University to develop our Master of Science in Nursing–Family Nurse Practitioner Program (MSN-FNP) to train the caregivers we need.

Nurse practitioners are a major solution to the primary care shortage facing our country. They also provide high-quality care that helps reduce the overall cost of healthcare for patients.
