This historic program has maintained full nursing accreditation status since its initial accreditation.


Currently, there are three clinical tracks leading to eligibility to sit for national board certification as a Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP), Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner (PMHNP) or Adult-Gerontology Primary Care Nurse Practitioner (AGNP).

There are also two post-master certificate options: one for individuals who are not nurse practitioners but hold a Master of Science in Nursing degree (the MSN-RN option), and one for nurse practitioners who hold a Master of Science in Nursing degree but are nationally certified in another specialty (the MSN-NP option).
