This online post-master's certificate program is designed to prepare practitioners for professional practice in the management of medical, surgical, and critical care patient populations. The program provides the knowledge and skills needed to improve and sustain the health of acutely ill patients. Emphasis is placed upon diagnostic reasoning and clinical decision making. Acute care nurse practitioners are needed in a variety of healthcare settings, including: emergency departments, intensive care units, clinics, labs and more.
The program can generally be completed in one year of part-time study. Transcripts will be reviewed and course work will be determined on an individual basis. Coursework completed more than ten years ago will not be accepted for the following courses: Advanced Pharmacology, Advanced Pathophysiology, and Advanced Physical Assessment. Additionally, nurse practitioners practicing in the state of Pennsylvania, who do not have prescriptive authority, will need to take both the Advanced Pharmacology course and the Track Specific Advanced Pharmacology courses.
