The American Rescue Plan has opened the doors of affordable health care to more than 528,000 people since January 2021.* With more people gaining access to care, healthcare workers, particularly nurse practitioners, are in high demand. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts employment of NPs to grow by 45% between 2019 and 2029.

Hawai‘i Pacific University’s 100% online MSN program with an FNP specialization prepares BSN-credentialed nurses to provide a greater level of medical care, achieve increased autonomy, and practice transcultural care in the spirit of aloha - love, kindness, grace, and unity.
