Besides operating as partner and managing director of the Lyman Group at HighTower Advisors, Curtis Lyman supports a number of charitable endeavors. As a former member of the board of advisors for Harriet L. Wilkes Honors College at Florida Atlantic University (FAU), Curtis Lyman assisted the school in keeping its tradition of providing a quality education. Well known for its Christine E. Lynn College of Nursing, Florida Atlantic University will soon offer its RN-to-BSN program and its family nurse practitioner master’s degree program at the FAU Oceanographic Institute in Fort Pierce.
With the enactment of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), nurses are playing and will continue to play an expanding role in providing health care to Americans. In response, FAU offers its family nurse practitioner master’s degree program, which involves a complete education available through online classes and on-site clinical training that leads to the development of extensive professional knowledge and capabilities. Upon graduating from the program, FAU nursing students will have the skills necessary to furnish a high level of care to the close to 300,000 Floridians now possessing coverage under the ACA. Master’s degree program graduates taking the nurse practitioner exam have a 100 percent proven passing rate over the past five years.
