Flexible Certificate Program Designed for Busy Nurses

This affordable nurse practitioner graduate certificate couples rigorous academics with the flexibility working RNs need. Practicum experiences are spread over a few semesters in the latter half of your program of study, providing advance notice for your scheduling needs.

Specialized Nurse Practitioner Career Options

As employment opportunities and demands of the health care environment change, nurses at the graduate level need additional specialty education. Our graduate certificate program offers two nurse practitioner concentrations: Family Nurse Practitioner or Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner. Further, the Family Nurse Practitioner concentration offers streamlined options for certified Adult NPs, Pediatric NPs, and Women’s Health NPs to gain their Family NP certificate without repetitive coursework.

Please note: The Post-Master's Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner (PMHNP) certificate option requires the prospective student to be board-certified as a Family NP prior to acceptance into the program. This certificate program also has its own PMHNP Admission process.
