What will I learn?

The post-master’s certificate options provide lifelong learners with the opportunity to specialize in an area other than that obtained in their MSN program. An MSN degree is required. Those who complete the certificate option earn a certificate of completion, not another master’s degree, and are eligible to apply for the appropriate specialty certification exam.

The post-master’s certificate in Family Nurse Practitioner Option consists of five semesters/11 courses offered by Troy University’s School of Nursing and requires 33 semester hours and 705 clinical clock hours for completion. Students who begin in Fall semester can complete the FNP certificate option in five semesters. The program is open to graduate students who have completed an MSN program and meet the requirements. There are a limited number of mandatory on campus requirements. There is a certification exam available with completion of this certificate.
