Mary, a registered nurse, decided that she wants to become a CNP. She applied and was accepted to the Family Nurse Practitioner program at Chamberlain College of Nursing.  She received a course curriculum which outlined the courses necessary to complete her degree. One of the early courses in the program curriculum is NR-501 Theoretical Basis for Advanced Nursing Practice.
