New Accreditation Requirements and Professional Standards
Due to new accreditation requirements and professional standards, the W. Cary Edwards School of Nursing RN-BSN/MSN programs are in the planning phase of curriculum changes which will go into effect in the July 2013 term. New information will become available as changes are made.
Graduate Nursing Certificate Programs
The W. Cary Edwards School of Nursing graduate nursing certificate programs are designed for experienced RNs with a master's in nursing who want to develop the knowledge and skills needed to practice in another area of nursing specialty. The certificate programs consist of theory courses and two practicums, a maximum of 18 credits each, and are available in each area of specialty offered in the MSN degree program. The competencies identified, and the theory and practicum courses, are the same for the certificate programs as for students completing the same area of specialty in the MSN degree program. A certificate in the selected area of specialty is awarded on certificate program completion pending clearance by the College.
