Post Master's Family Nurse Certificate Program

Post Master's Family Nurse Practitioner Program

The Post-Master’s FNP (PM-FNP) curriculum provides those already possessing a master’s degree in nursing with additional course and clinical work to fulfill the requirements for Family Nurse Practitioner certification. This includes 575 practicum hours with appropriately credentialed preceptors in practice settings. Following a transcript evaluation, it may be determined that FNP Certificate applicants must take additional coursework to fulfill the requirements. Essential courses are those focused on advanced practice nursing role responsibilities (role course and 3 advanced science courses [MSN 621, MSN 622, and MSN 623]). If these requirements were met during their previous graduate studies, Post Master’s FNP students are required to take the 3 required certificate courses listed below.

After completing the four Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP) courses listed below, you may be eligible for the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) Family Nurse Practitioner certification exam.

MSN 624 Advanced Primary Care Management with Middle Aged and Older Adults (3 credits)
