Post-Graduate APRN Certificate (FNP)

The post-graduate certificate program for preparation as a Family Nurse Practitioner is an option for nurses who are prepared at the MSN level in a clinical specialty other than FNP. The certificate can be completed in as little as four consecutive semesters of full-time study, beginning in the summer. We also have part-time study available.
