The Augusta University College of Nursing offers four post graduate certificate options: Adult Gerontology Acute Care Nurse Practitioner (AGACNP), Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP), Pediatric Nurse Practitioner (PNP), and Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner (PMHNP).
The post-graduate certificate tracks are available for nurses who have their masters or doctoral degree, are certified as an Advanced Practice Registered Nurse (APRN), and who desire addition additional certification in one of our track areas.
All of these track options are approved by the Georgia Board of Regents as a web-based program with greater than 50 percent of the program taught on-line. Due to the progressive nature of the specialty courses, these options are typically considered par-time study only (less than 9 credit hours per semester.)
Clinical courses emphasize the care of patients and their families. The program includes completion of relevant specialty clinical courses with clinical experiences at a variety of ambulatory practices in Georgia, South Carolina, or Tennessee. The program personnel will conduct a gap analysis for each student to identify additional courses that may be needed to meet certification and accreditation standards.
