Program Overview

The Family Nurse Practitioner certificate program is designed for certified nurse practitioners (NP) with a masters or doctoral degree who would like to expand their scope of practice to provide advanced primary healthcare to clients, family and communities. Course and clinical work emphasizes care of the adult, pediatric, and geriatric patients and their families. This certificate program is approved by the Georgia Board of Regents as a web-based program with greater than 50 percent of the program taught online. Due to the progressive nature of the specialty courses, the program is typically considered part-time (less than nine credit hours per semester). This is an embedded or stand alone certificate.
