Welcome to the Carr College of Nursing
The Board of Trustees of Harding University approved the development of a Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) with a Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP) track to open in the Fall of 2014. The academic administration of Harding, and the administration and faculty of the Carr College of College of Nursing have worked for several years to plan the feasibility and details of program implementation.
Successful completion of this program prepares Advanced Practice Registered Nurses (APRNs) to apply for national certification as a Family Nurse Practitioner, and prepare for a variety of rewarding roles in health care systems. As state and federal decisions shape the future of health care and advanced nursing practice, the graduate will be positioned to make a significant impact on safe and quality patient care.
Full-time and part-time progression options are available.
