NKU’s School of Nursing offers two types of post-graduate certificate programs: the Post-Master's of Science in Nursing certificate and the Nurse Practitioner Advancement certificate. Both are geared toward flexibility for the working nurse, with part-time and fully online curricula. Graduates of the programs are qualified to take the certification exam for their nursing specialty.
Our online Post Graduate certificates offer the flexibility that most working RNs desire. Unique features of this program include:
Concentrations vary between 33 and 47 credit hours. Students may take courses year round (fall, spring, and summer). Students can expect to finish in two years or less depending on the concentration and full/part-time status.
Most students work full time and have family responsibilities. Our fully online Post-Master's graduate certificate provides the needed flexibility to successfully complete your degree.
Neither submission of all application materials nor meeting program requirements guarantees admission into the program.
