Increase the scope of your practice with an FNP certificate. You'll be able to practice in new ways, including making diagnoses, prescribing medication and providing expert primary care to individuals, families and communities–making you a commodity in the field.
You must meet the following requirements to apply for the FNP Certification Program:
Applicants may be considered for conditional admission on an individual basis if they do not meet the following requirements for full admission status:
To move from conditional to full admission status, a GPA of at least 3.0 must be earned in the first semester (minimum of 6 credit hours) of the program. If the GPA at the end of the first semester of the program is not at least 3.0, the student is withdrawn from the program and is not eligible to re-apply.
Admission to the program is a competitive process and is based upon a holistic review of an applicant’s unique experiences and traditional measures of academic achievement. Students may be able to earn credit by exam, based on individual circumstances and transcript review.
|How do I apply?|
Apply before the priority date to have the opportunity to be in the first round of interviews and have the best chance to secure your seat in the program.
You can still apply after the priority date. If you submit your application by the first of the month, you could be interviewed the last five business days of the same month.
Our program is different. We focus on teaching a holistic, relationship-centered approach to nursing and teach nurse coaching techniques that help you effect real change in the lives of your patients.
Not only are we teaching you to help your patients, you'll learn about current health care trends and what that means for today's FNP.
You matter, too. In this program, you'll learn self-care techniques to improve your own resilience and prevent future burnout.

You're not required to stop working while you're in the program. Check the curriculum and course load for your cohort to see what will work best for you.
Classes are 100% online, but keep in mind you'll need to dedicate as much time to your studies as a traditional, face-to-face program.

In an online program, your computer is your best friend. Your computer will need to have multi-media capabilities for video, audio, live-chat and internet access. Your hardware and network are an important part of engaging with the course material, your professors and other students.
