The College of Nursing offers a post master's advanced certificate program for Nurse Practitioners. The program is in hybrid format including online and face-to-face classes. Classes are either fully online through Brightspace or meet one evening per week if classroom based.
These two-, three- and four-semester programs prepare nurses for career opportunities available only to nurses with specialized education.
Expert faculty guide clinical learning under the preceptorship of experienced nurses, nurse practitioners and physicians in settings throughout Central New York. The College of Nursing has clinical contracts with more than 200 institutions and agencies. Students arrange their own preceptored sites with advisement from our faculty.
The College will accommodate student's interests as long as the settings and preceptors meet the requirements of the post master's program.
Although every effort is made to accommodate work and family schedules, applicants should enter the program when they have adequate time to fulfill the required clinical hours.
