Post Master’s Certification

Post Master’s Certification Program

Please be aware the MSN curriculum is undergoing revision. Admission to the CNL and the CNS Post Master's Certification Program will be based on the applicant's ability to complete all requirements prior to August 2019.

The Graduate Nursing Program offers nurses with a Master’s degree in nursing an option to achieve CNL or CNS certification in a 13 credit Post Master’s Certification program. Applicants must meet the requirements for admission to the MSN program and show evidence of completing the indicated prerequisite courses. Alternatively, the graduate student may enroll in these additional courses as part of the Post MSN Certification course plan. Refer to the specific information about each role on the MSN page.

Post MSN Certification Program Goals:

  1. Prepare post-graduate nurses for new roles as leaders and advanced clinicians whose practice incorporates the values of the Sisters of Charity of the Incarnate Word.
  2. Expand upon previous MSN educational foundation to address the health needs of selected clinical populations. 
  3. Collaborate with inter-professional teams to improve the health and illness outcomes of clinical populations in complex health care systems.
