Your clinical placement is our pledge.
We understand securing clinical placement as part of a post master's certificate nursing program is one of the biggest concerns students face. At Herzing, we offer guidance and support through our step-by-step Clinical Guidance Process to ensure you can get the clinical practice experiences you need.
As a Herzing student, we’ll encourage you to find your own preceptor and clinical sites as there are many benefits to doing so. However, we provide extensive support should you find difficulty along the way. With Herzing, you are never on your own.
Because of our strong relationships with healthcare providers across the U.S. and our comprehensive Clinical Guidance Process, we are confident in our ability to help you find clinical placement. So much so that if you are unable to find a clinical site on your own, we pledge to step in and help you secure clinical placement.*

Expand Your Advance Practice Nursing Role

Herzing's nursing certificate programs enroll six times per year and are available exclusively online in full-time and part-time options. To pursue a nursing post graduate certificate, prospective students must live in a state where Herzing University is authorized to offer the certificate program and must have earned a Master of Science in Nursing degree from a college or university accredited by the U.S. Department of Education. Equivalent foreign credentials will also be considered.
