Graduates of the Frontier Nursing University NP programs may be eligible to take the national certification exam for their respective specialization. Nurse practitioners serve in a variety of roles in public and private practice including hospitals, government organizations, clinics, schools, research institutions, and other health care organizations.

Frontier Nursing University is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC). The NP programs are accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN). Frontier Nursing University is located in Hyden, Kentucky.

Tuition is calculated based on credits, at the published tuition rate. Rates may change, so please check here for the latest tuition information. For programs with variable tuition rates, we use the rates for part-time students. “Resident” and “non-resident” refer to the student’s school-recognized state residency status. Tuition number represents the cost of tuition for the entire program, not per semester or year. Estimated total tuition does not include additional fees.
