The Department of Graduate Nursing offers Post-Master's Certificate programs for Nurse Practitioners.
Students seeking a Post-Master's 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.
SATURDAY COURSES: Some NP programs have required courses and events scheduled on Saturdays. Please consult with the director of the program you are interested in, before applying for admission, if you are unable to attend Saturday classes.
