Family Nurse Practitioner Certificate Clinical Experience

Program Links

For the Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP) Track, students will choose a clinical site in their geographic area which fulfills the qualifications of the course they will be enrolled in for that semester. Upon acceptance into the track, the students will receive additional information about paperwork necessary for selecting and working with a preceptor, including Memorandum of Understanding (MOU Request), Preceptor CV, and Preceptor Agreement with the clinical agency. All preceptors must be board certified, licensed, and in practice for a minimum of two years as either a physician, physician assistant, nurse practitioner, or nurse midwife in a primary care setting. To check if an existing Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) is already in place between the clinical agency employing a potential preceptor and Georgia Southern University, go to the following website:  Make certain the MOU is active (not inactive).


Here you can find our Preceptor Manual which familiarizes students and preceptors with clinical expectations.
