Family Nurse Practitioner Graduate Certificate

The Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP) Graduate Certificate program provides a formal program of study for master’s-prepared nurses interested in taking the national certification exam to practice as a Family Nurse Practitioner. To be eligible to take the national certification exam students must “successfully complete graduate didactic and clinical requirements of a master’s nurse practitioner program through a formal graduate-level certificate or Master’s level NP program in the desired area of practice.” The FNP Certificate program offers a formal program of study to meet this need for students who already have the Master of Science in Nursing degree without requiring a second master’s degree.
