What Sets UM-Flint's Nursing Certificates Apart?
In addition to flexible online coursework, you will benefit from the practical hands-on experience of clinical site visits where you will care for actual patients under the close supervision and mentorship of experienced nurses and physicians. Upon completing either certificate, you will be eligible to sit for the respective practitioner exam.
Psychiatric Mental Health
Acquire the specialized skills and experiences to provide mental health services for a diverse population of patients across their life-spans. Offered in a online format, the post-graduate certificate in psychiatric mental health allows you to complete the required coursework in as little as four semesters while continuing to work.
Adult Gerontology Acute Care
The demand for acute care providers in the adult population is increasing. Veterans’ medical centers, emergency departments, rehabilitation centers, skilled nursing facilities, and other settings need employees with the skills to manage acute illness. This post-master’s certificate program enables graduates to fill open positions in acute care settings.
The online format provides maximum access to students who would be otherwise unable to attend an on-campus program.
Adult Gerontology Acute Care: 29 credits completed in as little as four semesters.
Psychiatric Mental Health: 25 credits completed in as few as four semesters.
Manage and improve outcomes for culturally diverse populations of patients by gaining an additional specialty as either a certified Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner or an Adult Gerontology Acute Care Nurse Practitioner. The UM-Flint certificates will provide students with the skills needed to assess, plan, develop, implement, and evaluate health care for patients.
Throughout the post-graduate certificate programs, you will receive practical instruction from faculty who are experts in the field of nursing. Your faculty mentors remain available and accessible to support and guide you online as well as in person.
The baccalaureate, master’s, certificate, and DNP programs at the University of Michigan-Flint are accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education.
