ENPC Program Highlights
Prepare for the ENP Certification Exam & Licensure
Become a practicing Emergency Nurse Practitioner. After graduating from our certificate program, you are eligible to take the AANPCB national certification exam for the Emergency Nurse Practitioner. After this, you will be able to apply for licensure in advanced practice nursing as an emergency nurse practitioner.
Help Address the National Shortage in Emergency Departments
There’s a shortage of providers in emergency departments across the nation. Emergency Nurse Practitioners meet the national need for care providers with their unique abilities, education, and qualifications.
Designed for Practicing FNPs
Our program is specifically designed for practicing Family Nurse Practitioners with a master’s degree in nursing (or higher). Keep caring for your patients without having to relocate while you earn your next credential. Our limited-residency program is designed for you, the busy FNP, who is ready to make an even greater impact on patients in emergency settings.
We also offer a dual FNPC/ENPC program for individuals who are not Family Nurse Practitioners.
3 Onsite Weeks
During the ENPC program, you have one week of onsite instruction per semester (3 semesters total). While onsite, you will focus on intensive skills acquisitions, learn high-risk skills in high-fidelity simulation settings, and gain in-person hands-on emergency care skills in a university setting.
Our curriculum is designed to help prepare you to be the best Emergency Nurse Practitioner. Offer the emergent care your patients need.
