Post Master’s Certificate
Post-master’s certificates are offered to enable nurses who hold master’s degrees in nursing to gain the knowledge and competencies needed for certification in additional areas. Students enroll in specialty coursework that is part of the master’s degree program. Completion of the post-master’s option enables students to take the certification examination for the appropriate area of specialty. Core courses required for students in their original Master’s degree nursing program will be evaluated for equivalency to the required post-master’s certificate courses.

The length time to complete the certificate varies but generally takes one to two years.
Awarding the Certificate
Upon the completion of courses and regulations for the certificate programs, the students may request through the Graduate Nursing Admissions Coordinator in the School of Nursing and Health Professions Office of Academic Assistance to have the certificate awarded. The Graduate Nursing Admissions Coordinator will verify that all requirements have been met and will notify the University’s Registrar’s Office so that the certificate can be notated on the student’s transcript.
