A Post Masters graduate certificate is an award that requires completion of an organized program beyond the Master’s degree but does not meet the requirements for a Doctorate degree.
It is an option designed to provide individuals who already hold a Master of Science in Nursing degree or Master of Science in a field of nursing with the core courses and clinical experiences necessary for national exam eligibility. In your continuing education pursuit, the Post Master's certificate provides a systematic and unified way to achieve your goals.
Currently, four universities offer online Nursing Post Master’s certificates in the following specializations, but are no longer accepting new students:
- Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP)
- Nursing Education
- Nursing Administration
