Post-Master’s Certificates

Post-Master’s Certificates

Post-Master’s certification at YSN is currently available in these four areas:

  • adult/gerontology acute care nurse practitioner
  • family nurse practitioner
  • pediatric nurse practitioner
  • psychiatric-mental health nurse practitioner

While many students complete the post-master’s program within two years, the program allows students to design individualized plans of study with faculty, in accordance with student backgrounds, career objectives, and outside commitments.

Tuition is charged on a per-credit basis. In 2017-18, the per-credit rate is $1,575; rates for 2018-19 have not yet been determined. Students are not charged for courses that are waived by either transcript or challenge examination. Post-master’s students are not eligible for scholarship aid, but may be eligible for loans for graduate and professional students.
