Curriculum

The curriculum of your previous Master’s degree in Nursing will determine the curriculum of your Post-Master’s certificate curriculum. Essentially, you will be required to take only the courses not completed by your previous Master’s degree in another area to earn the Post-Master’s certificate in the specialty area you choose. Because students in the Post-Master’s Certificate programs come to us from a variety of institutions with a variety of academic experiences, the curriculum is very much individualized to each learner.


Funding

Please note that certificate programs are not eligible for federal financial aid; consequently, you will not be able to fill out a FAFSA to seek financial aid for these programs. Students most commonly pay for courses independently, use employer tuition-assistance programs, or seek external scholarships for funding support.
