Roseman University College of Nursing adds Post-master’s Family Nurse Practitioner Certificate to its growing continuum of programs

November 17, 2022 By Jason Roth

The College of Nursing at Roseman University of Health Sciences has launched a Post-Master’s Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP) Certificate program. The new program comes as the University continues to add in-demand degrees and programs to offer students more career opportunities and to help bolster local, regional, and national healthcare systems and infrastructures.

Designed for graduates with a master’s degree in nursing and at least one year of experience as a registered nurse, the Post-Master’s FNP certificate provides academic preparation to offer patient care at levels consistent with primary care family nurse practitioners with a shorter time commitment than earning a Doctor of Nurse Practice (DNP).

“The Post-Master’s FNP Certificate allows master’s level nurses to build upon their knowledge to optimize patient care with an in-depth study, including clinical experiences that cover acute and chronic illnesses through the life cycle of patients. This includes gerontology, women’s health, pediatrics, and family health,” said Roseman University College of Nursing Dean Brian Oxhorn, BSN, MSN, PhD.

The program features a flexible, online format perfect for the working nurse. It can be completed in 18 months and prepares graduates to take the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) or American Association of Nurse Practitioners (AANP) FNP certification exam.

The College of Nursing began accepting applications for the Post-Master’s FNP Certificate program on November 17 for its first cohort, which is scheduled to begin in April 2023. Students applying for the inaugural cohort of the program will pay only $40 to apply.

The addition of the Post-Master’s FNP Certificate program builds on Roseman’s current Registered Nurse to Bachelor of Science in Nursing (RN to BSN), accelerated Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN), MSN/FNP and DNP programs to offer a seamless path for students seeking to grow their nursing careers and provide advanced patient care.
