Good news – Post-Master’s NP certificate program is now available in a multitude of USA colleges.
Post-Master’s Certificate Program enables nurses with a Master’s Degree in Nursing to pursue state certification in an additional specialty area, or seek a program of study that may lead to a change in role (e.g., a CNL or CNS seeking an NP specialization certificate). You’ll receive a certificate upon completion and will be eligible to apply for national certification examinations.
