About the Program

The Master of Primary Care Nurse Practitioner (PC-NP) aims to prepare registered nurses with advanced training. Didactic and clinical courses will prepare nurses with specialized knowledge and clinical competencies to practice in primary health care settings. Nurse practitioners will bring a comprehensive perspective and personal touch to healthcare in Saudi Arabia. To do this, students are expected to demonstrate a high level of professional competencies. Competency development is determined at the interface between acquisition and application of knowledge, skills, and attitudes. So, SEU in collaboration with Colorado State University-Global Campus build the master of PC-NP which provides high-quality educational standards and international practices to prepare qualified nurse practitioners in order to represent the nation and compete with international universities
