The Bradley Advantage

Designed for students who already have MSN degrees, the online FNP certificate program gives you the added academic and experiential care background to be a primary care provider. The program takes six semesters and includes 1,000 hours of clinical practicum experience, which you can complete with approved supervisors of your choice. Even though you may be miles from Peoria, you’re in close contact with Bradley faculty and classmates. Upon completion of the program, you are prepared for certification through the American Nurses Credentialing Center or American Organization of Nurse Executives.

Successful Outcomes

With the certificate, you can work in hospitals, clinics, private practices, schools, community clinics, Hospices and other settings. You will have the freedom to examine patients, diagnose illness and treat patients without a supervising physician in 20 states.
