Can you practice as a nurse practitioner without being certified?

Depending on where you live, there are certain guidelines related to licensure. You will need to check with your state board of nursing.

At Herzing University, we assist you in identifying which certification exam meets your needs. We also encourage testing within the first 90 days of graduation to help you take the next step in your career. Once you have successfully become certified then it is important to connect with your state board to meet their requirements.
