How Long Does a Post-Master’s Certificate Take?
Flexibility makes our post-master's certificate programs work for your life. While some of our programs have a set completion time due to clinical requirements, for some courses you can accelerate based on your existing skill and knowledge. You can also continue to work full-time, taking on courses whenever it works for your busy schedule.
How Much Does a Post-Master’s Certificate Cost?
At WGU, tuition is charged per six-month term, not per credit. Our post-master's certificates vary in price from $4,367 to $6,350 depending on the program. You can take as many credits as you are able during the term and not pay more. This allows students to save money the faster they are able to go through their courses.
Do I Need an MSN to Apply to a Certificate Program?
In order to apply for these post-master’s certificate programs, you must already hold an MSN degree. These specific nursing certificates are meant to be added on to your current MSN degree. They do not take the place of an advanced nursing degree.
A post master certificate in nursing from WGU has a number of benefits, including:
