Post-master's certificate curriculum varies depending on the student’s previous educational experience. Each admitted student will work with his/her faculty advisor to work out a specific program plan. Please refer to the related degree program for general curriculum information. Courses that are considered current by the APRN certifying boards that were completed in your previous nursing master's may be waived within the post-master's curriculum.

The number of credit hours needed to complete a post-master’s program will range from 12-45 (depending on previous nursing master's and post-master's program of interest).
