Post Graduate Certificates

Post Masters Certificate's available in Adult-Gerontology, Family, and Family Psychiatric Mental Health tracks.

Applicants who have a Master’s Degree in Nursing may be admitted to the department’s Nurse Practitioner (FNP, AGNP, or FPMHNP) Post-Master’s Certificate Program. Courses are delivered through an integration of both online and hybrid coursework. Because these certification programs utilize past learning experience to satisfy some course requirements, programs of study are highly individualized and tailored to the needs of the students.  Therefore, the applicant must meet with the School of Nursing’s Graduate Nursing Program Director’s to complete a gap analysis and design a program of study for post-master’s requirements. Out-of-state applicants should become familiar with their state’s regulations governing distance accessible programs.

TRANSFER CREDIT

Courses considered for transfer credit must: (1) be no more than 7 years of age at the time of admission, unless otherwise approved by the program; (2) be earned at an institution that is regionally accredited; (3) be graduate-level courses; and (4) not exceed specific program limitations on total number of hours. All transfer requests are subject to approval by the Associate Provost for Graduate Studies and Research.
