Nursing & Health Professions

Certificate for Advanced Study (CAS) in Family Nurse Practitioner

 
The CAS Adult Nurse Practitioner program is no longer accepting new students.  Please consider the CAS Family Nurse Practitioner program.


The Department of Nursing & Health Professions is authorized by the New York State Education Department to offer a post-master’s Certificate for Advanced Study in Family Nurse Practitioner to registered nurses who already possess both baccalaureate and master’s degrees in nursing from accredited programs.

Admission requirements for these post-master’s certificate programs are the same as for the department’s MS nursing program except applicants must have a minimum 3.2 grade point average (on a 4.0 scale) for all graduate level work completed.

Degree Requirements

The CAS in Nursing with a major in Family Nurse Practitioner consists of 36 credit hours:

  • NUR 531 Family Theory (2 credits)
  • NUR 555 Clinical Pharmacology (3 credits)
  • NUR 566 Advanced Health Assessment (3 credits)
  • NUR 567 Advanced Health Assessment Clinical (2 credits)
  • NUR 570 Clinical Pathophysiology (3 credits)
  • NUR 572 Family Health Promotion & Disease Prevention Across the Lifespan (3 credits)
  • NUR 580 Beginning Level Family Clinical (2 credits)
  • NUR 652 Family Primary Health Care I (3 credits)
  • NUR 658 Women’s Health Care (2 credits)

  • NUR 670 Intermediate Level Family Clinical (3 credits)
  • NUR 680 Advanced Level Family Clinical (4 credits)
  • NUR 692 Culminating Seminar for Nurse Practitioners (2 credits)

The faculty realize that students in the post-master’s certificate programs will come with a variety of backgrounds and experience. Students will need to meet with an adviser early in the course of study to determine specific clinical needs. Every effort will be made to provide students with both necessary and desired clinical experiences.
