The final program plan and course requirements for each student admitted to a graduate certificate program will be based on a gap analysis consistent with National Organization of Nurse Practitioner Faculties’ Criteria for Evaluation of NP Programs standards (https://www.nonpf.org/page/15) in order to ensure the student’s eligibility to sit for national certification in the selected population focus upon program completion. The gap analysis will include, at a minimum, a review of previous transcripts and course syllabi for which transfer or equivalent credits are requested. Additional documentation may be required in order to complete the gap analysis.
This will depend upon how many of our required courses have already been completed at the graduate level. Your program director will review your coursework and create a schedule for you.
