The Nurse Practitioner programs are available as degree-seeking MSN and as post-MSN certificate programs. Students seeking the MSN degree with NP preparation must meet the admission criteria (as described unconditional). Students seeking a post-masters certificate must have completed an MSN from an NLNAC or CCNE accredited program. Depending on course work completed for the MSN and current advanced practice status (as applicable), an individualized certificate degree plan will be developed. Prospective post MSN certificate students are strongly encouraged to contact the MSN program office (817.272-2329) prior to application to review their MSN transcript and determine the most appropriate semester for admission.
