Post Baccalaureate Advanced Certificate in Nursing Administration

The nursing and health professions department is authorized by the New York State Education Department to offer a post-baccalaureate Advanced Certificate in Nursing Administration. The certificate program is designed to meet the needs of nurses who hold a baccalaureate degree in nursing and who also currently hold nurse-manager positions. These students may opt to continue working toward the master’s degree after completion of the certificate.

An additional 15 credits of coursework would be required to earn the MS in Nursing Administration. The program is also intended for graduates of the ANP/FNP programs and other area nurses who hold a variety of graduate degrees in nursing and who seek additional skills and knowledge in leadership and management for enhancement or advancement in their expanded roles. Successful completion of the Advanced Certificate in Nursing Administration would enable eligible students to sit for the American Nurses Credentialing Center's Nursing Administration National Board Certification Exam.

Admission requirements for the post-baccalaureate and post-master's certificate are the same as for the School's graduate program. Course requirements for the post-baccalaureate or post-master's certificate in nursing administration total 18 credits. Enrollees may complete the certificate program in four consecutive terms of part-time study (fall, winterm, spring, summer) within one calendar year.
