Would you like to expand or change your advanced practice nursing role? Our Post-Master’s Certificate programs offer opportunities for you to build upon your clinical skills and knowledge, allowing you to take your career in a new direction.
The post-master’s certificate is designed to provide nurses who already have a master’s degree a way to specialize in another area or become a nurse practitioner.
Your plan of study will be individualized based on your prior clinical coursework and what is necessary to complete the program. Some clinical hours can be transferred from your prior master’s degree or earned through supervised clinical hours in the specialty.
