Post-Master’s and Certificate Programs

The nurses we train here at Penn are dedicated to the lifelong pursuit of improving their ability to care for patients, be it at the bedside, in the lab, or in the boardroom. 

All of our MSN programs  include a Post-Master’s Certificate option as do some of our minors . These programs can be pursued at any time post-degree. Current Master’s students are also welcome to work on these certificates as complementary minors to their studies.
