The School of Nursing offers a post baccalaureate capstone certificate focused on the care of children with chronic conditions in the school setting.  The goal of the 10-credit, online program is to educate school nurses in the knowledge and skills required to provide evidence-based care for children with chronic conditions.  School nurses who possess cutting edge knowledge, based on the best science about the care of children with chronic conditions, will be well positioned to be leaders in school nursing practice.

The program of study consists of course work addressing care of children with chronic conditions, the system including legal and ethical issues in which the care is delivered, and professional issues of interdisciplinary school nursing practice.  Students can complete the program in three regular semesters and a summer requiring 1-3 credits per semester.
