Expand Your Advance Practice Nursing Role

As an advance practice nurse, you know where your interests lie and where you want to go with your career. Earning one of our online nursing certificates can help you get there.

For nurses who already hold a MSN, Herzing University’s certificate nursing programs offer you the opportunity to build upon your clinical expertise and become academically eligible for certification in another specialty.


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.
