Post-Master's Nurse Practitioner Certificate (Post-MSN NP Certificate)

We are accepting applications for the fall 2016 Post-MSN NP Certificate program. The fall 2016 application deadline is March 1, 2016.  We encourage students to apply and submit supporting documents as soon as possible as space is limited.

Post-Master's NP certificate programs are available online for students who already possess an MSN to pursue coursework for an adult/gerontological acute care, adult/gerontological primary care, pediatric primary care, family, or family psychiatric/mental health nurse practitioner certificate. The post-master's NP certificate program requires only two campus visits to Saint Louis University. The total number of credit hours varies among certificate offerings, however, a minimum of 15 credit hours is required for completion of a post-master's certificate program. At the discretion of the School of Nursing students may transfer 3-6 credit hours of graduate level coursework to be applied toward their post-master's certificate program of study. 

Student files are individually reviewed and some students may receive "advanced standing" in courses such as Advanced Health Assessment, Advanced Pathophysiology, and Advanced Pharmacology. In order to do so the student petitions for this status. The student must submit, at minimum, a course number and course description and possibly the syllabus from the course.

Upon completion of the requirements for the post-master's NP certificate program, students qualify to take the American Nurses Credentialing Center's (ANCC), PNCB (PNP), or the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners (AANP) certification exam.
