Post-Graduate Certificate Programs - Outcomes

APRN PGC Program Overview
With the increased adoption of the Consensus Model for APRN Regulation there is a growing awareness of the need to have formal academic preparation and APRN certification match the population served. The Post Graduate Certificate Program (PGC) is designed to allow masters or doctorally prepared APRNs the opportunity for additional education in a new practice population in order to obtain expanded certification for practice.

APRN PGC Outcomes

  1. Demonstrate expertise in the advanced practice care of a new patient population focus (for example, a Family Nurse Practitioner becomes also certified as a Psychiatric-Mental Health Nurse Practitioner).
  2. Utilize scientific underpinnings for the advanced practice care of a new patient population focus.

Health System PGC and PGC-APP Programs Overview
Trailblazing health care systems require Advanced Practice Provider leaders (APRNs and PAs) to have the knowledge and strategies to operationalize the infrastructures for Advanced Practice Providers (APPs) across multiple environments of care. The Post Graduate Health Systems/Administration - Practice Management for Advanced Practice Providers certificate meets this need.

Health Systems PGC-APP Outcome

  • Demonstrate leadership to collaborate effectively across disciplines in clinical practice settings to influence advanced practice and the roles of APPs in organizations.

The Post Graduate Health Systems/Administration certificate program provides guided study in leadership and management of health systems and is ideal for nurses and nurse leaders who are looking for further knowledge and skills in leading health care delivery for quality and innovation. A certificate is given at completion.

Health Systems PGC Outcome

  • Demonstrate organizational and systems leadership and management for patient care quality and safety and for continuous improvement of care delivery across the continuum.
