Dr. Laura McKay discusses the value of South University's Postgraduate Certificate program.

See Transcript »

My name is Laura McKay. I'm the Program Director for Nursing at the College of Nursing and Public Health at South University. South University offers the postgraduate certificate for nurses who are prepared at the Master's level seeking a certification as a family nurse practitioner, an adult gerentology primary care nurse practitioner, or a nurse educator.

Students in the postgraduate certificate program already have Master's Degrees, so they are taking courses that are adding to their knowledge in their clinical areas. They are integrated into those courses with other students in the graduate programs, and they are completing the same assignments and learning a different set of skills than those they already have.

Students seeking the post graduate certificate will become certified in their areas of study. The family nurse practitioner, an adult gerentology primary care nurse practitioner students will take the certification exams and be able to function in those clinical arenas. The nurse educator student may take the certification exam to be an educator at the Bachelor's or the Graduate level.

Learning outcomes of the post graduate certificate program are the same as for the Master of Science and Nursing Program, and are closely aligned with those of our accrediting and certifying bodies. Our students are prepared in areas of academic excellence, scholarship, research and clinical excellence.
