Post-Master’s Family Nurse Practitioner Certificate
Spring Deadline: October 19 | Fall Deadline: April 15
Students in the Post-Master’s Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP) certificate program are prepared to manage patients across the lifespan. Clinical rotations will prepare the student to meet the clinical competencies in managing the care of newborns to the end of life.
Each student enrolled in the Post-Master’s FNP program will complete, at a minimum, specialty courses now required for the MSN/FNP Program. A “gap analysis” will be conducted by the NP Program Director to determine if there are other requisite courses for students to complete. The number of clinical hours will also be determined by the NP Program Director.
Students accepted into this program are well supported by CRNP clinical faculty and the program director. The FNP curriculum is designed so that FNP students take nurse practitioner practicum courses along with their designated cohort of students. Clinical practicum experiences will be arranged by the MSN/NP Program Director and CRNP faculty. Curriculum
