A new method for solving second order differential equation called "Nikiforov-Uvarov-Functional-Analysis (NUFA) method is generalized. This method is employed to obtain the eigensolutions of the radial Schrodinger equation with selected exponential-type potential models. The NUFA method is seen to be easy and efficient, eliminating the rigorous mathematical manipulations encountered in other methods. Our results agree perfectly with the ones in different literatures.
