Graduate certificates include 15 credit hours of coursework, and may accompany a graduate nursing program or studied as a stand-alone program. Upon completion, students receive a transcripted graduate certificate. Graduate certificates do not result in a degree.

nurses, currently enrolled in a graduate program or nurses who already hold a graduate degree, with the knowledge and skills to educate learners in community, clinical, and classroom settings.


Post-APRN Licensure Certificates
