Program Details

Registered nurses (RNs) with a master’s degree in nursing could prepare to advance their careers by enrolling in the School of Nursing’s graduate-level Adult Nurse Practitioner Certificate program. This program allows RNs to combine their current nursing skills with training in the safe, effective practice of primary care for the management of acute and chronic health problems of adult patients. As a student in the certificate program, you will participate in a clinical practice experience designed to provide you with an opportunity to apply theoretical knowledge in a real-world setting.*

*Please note that most states require nurses to be nationally certified in order to obtain licensure as a nurse practitioner. Students are responsible for determining whether they will be eligible for state Board of Nursing approval and certification as a nurse practitioner or advanced practice nurse in their state. Students can obtain additional information from their state’s Board of Nursing, the American Nurses Credentialing Center (AACN), and the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners (AANP).
