Post-Master’s Nursing Certificates

Expand your expertise with our nurse certificate program.

Diversifying your skills is critical in the nursing industry. Let us help you enhance your knowledge. Our advanced post-master’s certificate programs were designed for students who already hold a master’s degree in nursing and provide an educational route to specialize in an area other than the concentration in their master’s program.

Areas of study include:

The post-master’s certificates in nursing strengthen the administrative or clinical capability of master’s-prepared nurses who are planning on or are already involved in a role expansion or change. You might be a clinical specialist who is moving into an administrative or nurse practitioner role or a nurse whose major was teaching and now wishes to become a nurse practitioner.

The program is individualized to each applicant based on past experience. It is a part-time course of study that includes between 19 and 33 credits of coursework. The post-master’s certificate is awarded upon successful completion of the required courses. Prior graduate courses are evaluated for possible advanced standing in the certificate program.

Each student’s program and required course work may differ depending on the faculty’s evaluation of courses taken in the student’s prior work.
