The University of Michigan School of Nursing (UMSN) offers 3 types of certificates: The new Clinical Research Management program, 10 options in specialized areas following completion of a master's degree, and an advanced Certificate in Nursing Education.
These programs result in receiving a certificate, not a degree, and are intended to supplement rather than replace an academic degree. With the growing demand for focused, specialized knowledge in a particular nursing or health-related area, completion of a certificate can assist professionals in furthering their qualifications in ways potentially not offered through a degree program. Certificate programs can generally be completed in less time than an academic degree program, but individual requirements vary. UMSN certificate options include the following:
- Clinical Research Management Certificate (online, beginning July 2013)
This new program allows admitted students to benefit from University of Michigan top professors and scholarship at their convenience in an online setting.This training prepares you for a rewarding career supporting potentially lifesaving research, in both industry (FDA-driven) and academic (often NIH-funded) study settings.
- Post-Master's Options
With a wide variety of specialty areas to choose from, each admitted student will work with a faculty advisor to tailor a certificate program to their specific area of interest. Set yourself apart and consider a Post-Masters' certificate to advance your nursing career.
- Certificate in Nursing Education (CNE)
This certificate is designed for individuals who seek to enhance their teaching skills and techniques in relation to the field of nursing. The CNE program is only available to those who have already completed a master's or doctoral program as well as students currently enrolled in a master's or doctoral program at the University of Michigan School of Nursing.
