On the front lines of healthcare delivery, nurses are experts in a variety of sub-specialties. As a nurse practitioner, you’re able to focus on particular types of advanced nursing practice to further advance your career. If you already have a master’s degree in nursing and would like to refine your practice to a specific patient population, an advanced certificate program at NYU Meyers is a terrific way to demonstrate that knowledge.
The application for our Advanced Certificate programs is available. All applicants to our Advanced Certificate programs are required to submit the following documents at the time of application:
- One (1) transcript from each post-secondary school attended. We can review applications with unofficial transcripts. Admitted students will be asked to submit official transcripts prior to beginning coursework at NYU Meyers.
- A two- to three-page personal statement.
- At least two (2) letters of recommendation.
- RN license and registration certificate. You may submit an application with an out-of-state license, but admitted students must obtain a New York State RN license prior to beginning coursework at NYU Meyers.
Applicants who have attended a post-secondary institution outside of the United States are required to upload one (1) transcript from each post-secondary school attended and submit one (1) official course-by-course evaluation of each foreign transcript directly to our office at the time of application. Your application will not be reviewed without these documents. Please mail your official course-by-course evaluation(s) to:
