Dear RN/MSN Student:

Thank you for your interest in the University of Michigan-Flint RN/MSN track. The RN/MSN curricular
pathway is for highly qualified ADN nurses seeking a MSN degree at UM-Flint as a Family Nurse
Practitioner, Adult Nurse Practitioner, or Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner. We hope to
help you reach your career goals.

Initially, you will be admitted as a student in our RN/BSN program so that you may complete prerequisite
courses for the MSN. The RN/BSN curriculum, which is offered online, has been created to fit the needs
and schedules of busy RNs. It has been tailored to be as flexible as possible while maintaining the high
standards associated with a University of Michigan-Flint degree. Our faculty and staff are available to help
motivated students successfully complete RN/MSN track requirements.

Enclosed is information about our program and the process to follow in seeking admission to the RN/BSN
program. Also attached is the Letter of Intent that will establish you as a student in the RN/MSN track.
Please follow the process carefully so your admission will be expedited quickly. As soon as the Office of
Admissions has received all of the necessary information, including official copies of all transcripts, your
records will be individually reviewed and your credits evaluated for transfer by an Admissions counselor.
Once you receive your transfer credit analysis, call for a phone or on-campus appointment with an RN
advisor at (810) 762-3420, or email your questions to lmkruse@umflint.edu.

Admission to the MSN program is a separate process that you will complete the spring before you begin
taking MSN classes. Learn more about the University of Michigan-Flint RN/MSN Program by visiting the
UM-Flint website http://www.umflint.edu/nursing/rnmsn.php. We look forward to meeting you and wish you
the best as you take on the challenge of advancing your education as an advanced practice nurse!

Sincerely,




Margaret M. Andrews, PhD, RN
Director, Department of Nursing

                                             MASTER of SCIENCE in NURSING

      Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP)
      Family nurse practitioners are primary health care providers. As advanced practice registered nurses
      (APRN), they provide nursing and medical services to individuals, families and groups, emphasizing
      health promotion and disease prevention across the life span. The FNP synthesizes theoretical, scientific
      and contemporary clinical knowledge in the management of acute and chronic diseases and the treatment
      of minor injuries.

      Services include, but are not limited to, history and physical examinations, the ordering of appropriate
      diagnostic and laboratory tests, the prescription of pharmacologic agents and treatments, and
      nonpharmacologic therapies. Teaching and counseling individuals, families, and groups are major parts
      of a nurse practitioner’s activities. Family nurse practitioners work autonomously as well as in
      collaboration with a variety of individuals to diagnose and manage clients’ health care problems.
      Graduates will be qualified to sit for the Family Nurse Practitioner certification examination.

      Adult Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner (PMHNP)
      The adult psychiatric mental health practitioner’s role is unique and on the cutting edge of mental health
      care. In Michigan, changes in the Michigan Mental Health Code have paved the way for new
      opportunities for adult psychiatric mental health nurse practitioners. The code specifically defines new
      responsibilities for advanced practice nurses employed in community mental health service programs.
      Adult psychiatric mental health nurse practitioners synthesize theoretical, scientific, and contemporary
      clinical knowledge and are capable of medical, pharmacological, and psychotherapeutic intervention in
      acute, crisis, and chronic persistent situations, as well as being skilled in disease prevention and health
      maintenance planning. Credentialed to practice independently, they value and seek ongoing consultative
      relationships with the psychiatrist and other mental health team members. Full utilization of psychiatric
      mental health nurse practitioners has the potential of extending mental health services in a cost-effective
      manner. Graduates will be qualified to sit for the Adult Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner
      certification examination, as well as the Adult Nurse Practitioner certification examination.

      Adult Nurse Practitioner (ANP)
      The adult nurse practitioner is a provider of direct health care services. Within this role, the ANP
      synthesizes theoretical, scientific, and contemporary clinical knowledge for the assessment and
      management of both health and illness states. The population in adult primary care practice includes
      adolescents and young, middle and older adults. The particular expertise of the adult primary care nurse
      practitioner emphasizes disease prevention, health promotion, and the management of patients with acute
      and chronic multi-system health problems. Delivering patient care with respect to cultural and spiritual
      beliefs and making health care resources available to patients from diverse cultures is an important role
      component. Most adult nurse practitioners practice in primary care settings, which include general and
      specialty practices. The ANP provides consultation, collaboration, continuing education, certification,
      and evaluation. Upon entry into practice the adult nurse practitioner demonstrates competence in the
      categories of health promotion, health protection, disease prevention, and diagnostics. Graduates will sit
      for the Adult Nurse Practitioner certification examination.
