The Nurse Administrator Graduate Certificate requires successful completion of three 3-credit graduate-level nursing administrator courses. The program also includes an optional 4-credit practicum course designed to give you the opportunity to apply the knowledge you gained in the three required courses.
Courses in the 9-credit certificate can help prepare you for nurse administrator roles by covering main topics including:
- health care economics and policy
- nurse leadership roles, concepts, and theories
- human resources in health care organizations
In addition to being an excellent stand-alone credential, all of the required courses in the Nurse Administrator Graduate Certificate can be applied toward the requirements for the Nurse Administrator option of the Master of Science in Nursing degree also offered online through Penn State's World Campus.
