ODU offers a master of science in nursing (MSN) with a family nurse practitioner (NP) concentration that students can complete mostly online. Although most coursework occurs through distance learning, students must attend ODU's Virginia Beach campus once a semester for testing and simulation training. In addition, learners complete a final comprehensive exam on campus.
This NP program in Virginia comprises 49 credits, but students can transfer up to 12 graduate credits. Online courses include video streaming content which may require distance learners to log on at specific times for certain asynchronous sessions. Students also complete supervised clinical work at family practice, internal medicine, women's health, and pediatric sites.
