Certificate in Family Nurse Practitioner
The CAS Adult Nurse Practitioner program is no longer accepting new students. Prospective students are encouraged to learn more about our CAS Family Nurse Practitioner program.
Nursing and Health Systems is authorized by the New York State Education Department to offer advanced certificates in both adult and family nurse practitioner to registered nurses who already possess both baccalaureate and master's degrees in nursing from accredited programs. Admission requirements for these post-master's certificate programs are the same as for the School's graduate program (except applicants must have a minimum 3.2-grade point average (on a 4.0 scale) for all graduate level work completed and they do not have to submit scores from the Graduate Records Examination).
Requirements for the advanced certificate in adult nurse practitioner total 30 credits; in family nurse practitioner, 36 credits. Enrollees follow the same program of study for the master of science in nursing in their respective major except they are not required to take NUR 500, NUR 503, and NUR 560. The faculty realizes that students in the post-master's certificate programs will come with a variety of backgrounds and experience. Students will need to meet with an advisor early in the course of study to determine specific clinical needs. Every effort will be made to provide students with both necessary and desired clinical experiences.
