Post Master's Certificate in Nursing

The Nebraska Wesleyan University Post Master's Certificate in Nursing program prepares nurses and nurse practitioners having an MSN degree to be a Nurse Educator or a Nurse Leader. With an MSN degree and the post master's certificate in nursing certificate, you can work in research, public health, and advanced levels of nursing administration, as well as a nurse educator.

As a teacher you may work at community colleges and universities. Nurse educators combine clinical skills and knowledge together with their passion for teaching future nurses.

Our highly qualified faculty makes personal attention to students an integral part of the certificate program.


The mission of the Post Graduate Certificate in Nursing program is to provide students with the advanced knowledge and practical techniques they will need to serve in their chosen fields of interest: one focusing on the nurse as educator and one on the nurse as leader. The certificate program also prepares students for the challenges of modern nursing through its overall emphasis on trans-cultural nursing, ethics, research and the application of knowledge and skills in a practice setting.
