Graduate Certificates in Advanced Nursing Practice I and II are designed to provide advanced nursing practice knowledge and practical experience for registered nurses who wish to acquire specialized skills.
The certificates strengthen nursing professionals’ knowledge and skills that are specific to their area of practice, and support them to integrate role dimensions that include advanced clinical skills, organizational leadership, research, education, professional development and consultation to impact patient, provider, and health system outcomes.
The certificates appeal to a wide audience of baccalaureate-prepared nursing professionals and other professionals from health-related disciplines who want to advance their careers in their current direct practice area, who want to transition into a new direct practice area, or who want to enter more senior education, leadership or management positions.
Each specialization certificate is a cohort-based, one-year, part-time program, offered via online delivery. The teaching and learning approaches will involve online content delivery and interaction (video-conferencing, webinars, and podcasts).
The delivery model will allow students to obtain graduate education at the Faculty of Nursing while continuing to work.
