Courses are provided by the FAU colleges of Nursing and Business, both of which are nationally accredited colleges.
The Clinical Nurse Leader track curriculum is a 33 semester hour part-time program designed to be completed in six (6) semesters. At the completion of coursework students are required to complete a 400 hour practicum working as Clinical Nurse Leaders in clinical partner sites. Students will be assigned a preceptor who will mentor them throughout this portion of the curriculum and will also take a supporting practicum seminar course.
