Why Choose an Advanced Nursing Specialty?

Nurses are stepping up to provide direct healthcare to patients like never before, as doctors become more specialized and spend less time with patients. There’s also a growing body of evidence that shows our nation’s desire for nurses with a BSN degree or higher as a way to improve healthcare delivery, according to the American Association of Colleges of Nursing.

With nurses expected to be in high demand for years to come, especially in the areas of advanced practice, it’s a good idea to earn a nursing specialty certificate after you graduate from nursing school.

With an MSN, you can pursue post-degree certification in a wide variety of specialty areas. We offer several certificate options for graduates of our Direct Entry MSN program, including:

  • Acute Care Nurse Practitioner (Adult or Pediatric)
  • Primary Care Nurse Practitioner (Adult or Pediatric)
  • Adult-Older Adult Clinical Nurse Specialist
  • Nurse Midwife
  • Systems Leadership and Healthcare Quality
