The Department of Nursing's Post-Graduate APRN Certificate programs are for advanced practice nurse leaders who already hold at least one certification as a nurse practitioner, nurse anesthetist, clinical nurse specialist, or nurse midwife.
The Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP) certificate includes theory online, on campus days for skills and simulation, and precepted clinical experiences.
Other Post-Graduate Certificates include:
- Adult Gerontology Acute Care Nurse Practitioner (AGPCNP)
- Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner (PMHNP)
The curriculum integrates nursing, science, concepts and theories from related disciplines, along with practice and research. The number of credits and time to complete the certificate are dependent on the specialty area.
