Why Earn a Post-Master’s Certificate?
In today’s health care landscape, patient, family, and community health needs are evolving at a rapid pace and creating complex, interlocking primary and acute care challenges.
With these challenges comes a demand for highly skilled, compassionate APRNs who can demonstrate a deep understanding of multiple clinical specializations.
Nurses with expanded expertise have the ability to shape care at many levels, from improving care for patients and families to reducing health disparities in their communities to leading positive, systems-level change in their organizations.
By earning a post-master's certificate online with Georgetown University, APRNs can broaden their influence and advance their careers in several ways:
- Develop advanced clinical abilities in one of four APRN specializations.
- Become eligible for board certification in their chosen specialization.
- Complete master’s-level course work that is designed to match the rigor and quality of Georgetown University’s MS in Nursing program.
- Apply a values-based approach to patient and family care that is founded on the Jesuit ideal of cura personalis, or care of the whole person.
