Delaware FNP Programs

Nurses who graduate from MSN programs that prepare Nurse Practitioners are licensed as Advanced Practice Registered Nurses (APRNs) by the Delaware Board of Nursing.

Nursing licensure requirements for licensure include: licensure as an RN; a master's degree or a post-basic program certificate in a clinical nursing specialty with certification from a national certification body recognized by the Board.

Nurse leaders may be licensed as either an APRN or RN, depending on their individual training and educational background. RN licensure in Delaware is available either by examination or endorsement.
