Frontier Nursing University is a private non-profit graduate school located in Hyden, Kentucky, that was founded by Mary Breckinridge in 1932. In 1970, the name was changed from The Frontier Nursing Service to The Frontier School of Midwifery and Family Nursing with the opening of the nation’s first family nurse practitioner program. In 1989, the school became the first graduate school of nurse-midwifery program to offer distance education programs. In 2011, Frontier School of Midwifery and Family Nursing became Frontier Nursing University.
FNU offers distance education to nurses with an interest in nurse-midwifery, family health and women’s health specialties. Didactic coursework is delivered using web-based, distance education courses allowing students to achieve their higher education goals without leaving home for classes. Using clinics, hospitals, and preceptors in their own community allows students to get the hands-on clinical experience required for these exciting health care professions. Two on-campus sessions are required, including an orientation prior to beginning studies, and intensive skill workshops prior to beginning the clinical practicum.
