This certificate program, accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education, is designed for nurses board certified in a different APRN specialty who seek additional certification as a family nurse practitioner or for nurses with a doctoral degree in nursing who seek to become a family nurse practitioner.
This program is offered in a hybrid iCourse and in-person format that requires students to travel to campus for up to a week for orientation at the beginning of the program and two or three times per semester.
Focused clinical experiences are arranged with appropriate preceptors and administrators for students residing in Arizona. In-state students who live in Maricopa County are assigned clinical experiences in that geographic area. In-state students who live outside of Maricopa County may be assigned clinical placements in other areas of Arizona based on the college's ability to secure clinical agreements with those sites. In the event that clinical sites are unavailable in the student's geographical area OR if the faculty determines the student needs additional faculty supervision for clinical progress in their program, the student is required to complete the clinical experience in the Phoenix area.
Students residing outside of Arizona are responsible for identifying one or more clinical sites in their area of residence. These sites must be approved by Edson College of Nursing and Health Innovation before starting any clinical experience.
Experiences with disadvantaged and multicultural populations are encouraged as are experiences in rural areas when sites are available for these experiences. These sites may be available in Maricopa County.
