USC and the education website 2U Inc. announced plans last week to develop an online Master of Science in Nursing program for aspiring family nurse practitioners. The program, to be called [email protected], is projected to start in fall 2016. It will provide registered nurses across the country the opportunity to participate in live classes with fellow students and USC faculty.

Each student also will engage in multiple clinical rotations in a variety of health care settings to gain experience assessing, diagnosing and managing health problems, according to USC and the educational company. The rotations will be selected and supervised by USC faculty.
Offered through the USC School of Social Work’s newly created Department of Nursing — the curriculum is designed to help meet the increasing nationwide demand for advanced practice nurses in primary care settings, officials said.

The family nurse practitioner curriculum will go through internal review and then be submitted for accreditation by both the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education and the Western Association of Schools and Colleges. For more information, visit
