We found 6 Family Nurse Practitioner Programs in Maine.

Maine is one of 32 states currently enrolled in the Nurse Licensure Compact (NLC), which allows nurses in NLC states to practice in other NLC states without obtaining additional licensure.

After completing their Master's study, Maine nurses can apply for and obtain an Advanced Practice Registered Nurse (APRN) license and should seek accreditation from a national certification institution associated with their specialty, such as the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC), the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners (AANP), the Council on Certification of Nurse Anesthetists, the National Board of Pediatric Nurse Associates and Practitioners, or the National Certification Corporation for the Obstetric, Gynecologic and Neonatal Nursing Specialties.

Typical Curriculum for a Master's of Nursing

A full-time student can typically complete a Master of Science in Nursing degree in 2 years, though most schools offer a part-time option. Nursing programs generally require students to complete a core curriculum before delving into the nursing specialty of their choice. This core curriculum tends to cover topics relating to research methods, foundational theories of nursing roles (including ethical and legal considerations), nursing informatics, healthcare policy, pharmacology, epidemiology, and pathophysiology.

Following these initial semesters of coursework, students will learn advanced material relevant to the track of their choice. The latter part of a Master's in Nursing will likely integrate practical clinical experience with classroom study, allowing students to both learn from and apply their skills to real-life situations. In Maine, a Nurse Practitioner is required to be familiar with pharmacology, either through 45 clinical hours or 3 credit hours of curricular study.

Nursing Licensure in Maine

After attending an ADN or BSN program recognized by the Maine Board of Nursing, applicants must earn a passing score on the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN) exam and then apply online with the Maine State Board of Nursing for licensure to practice in Maine.

Maine requires that nurses renew their licenses every two years, and nurses must complete 75 Continuing Education Hours prior to each renewal. In Maine, nurse practitioners must meet a requirement of at least two years of supervised practice.
