The Post Master’s Certificate, FNP program provides interested master’s-prepared nurses with the opportunity to take FNP specialty courses needed to qualify for APRN licensure and sit for the credential exam. Students in this program who did not take Advanced Health Assessment, Advanced Pathophysiology, and/or Advanced Pharmacology as part of their initial master’s degree program will be required to take these courses before taking FNP specialty courses.
Prerequisite Courses - 0-9 units
If NRS 500, NRS 502, and NRS 504 were not previously completed, these courses must be taken at CSU Channel Islands to earn the Family Nurse Practitioner Certificate. This could amount to an additional 3-9 units that will need to be completed.
