Family Nurse Practitioner

The Post-Master’s Certificate Family Nurse Practitioner (PMC-FNP) is a program that provides certified nurse practitioners formal education and clinical training in advanced family practice across the lifespan. This post-master’s certificate option builds on the existing curriculum of the Family Nurse Practitioner specialty. The plan of study includes all the required courses currently offered in the FNP specialty except for the statistics and research course. Required courses for all post-mater's FNP students are determined based on the incoming student's graduate academic record. Clinical courses are supervised by the FNP specialty faculty. For purposes of student eligibility for certification, all FNP required courses must be taken at the Yale School of Nursing or challenged by either examination or demonstration of similar course content in the student’s previous master’s program. Plans for full-time and part-time study may be obtained from the specialty director.

This program will fully prepare the FNP student to become board eligible and thus apply for certification and licensure as a family nurse practitioner.
