Post Graduate Certificate (PGC) Option

Applicants with an MSN in an NP concentration seeking specialization in another NP concentration requiring less than 30 credit hours should consider applying for a Post Graduate Certificate (PGC).  

PGC applicants may be considered for a Fall, Spring, or Summer admission and are accepted on a space available basis.

GradCAS Opens September 15th for Fall Nurse Practitioner Admissions

Admissions decisions are made based upon the quality of the application and the number of available slots in the program desired. Please read the following instructions carefully. 

Complete the Florida Atlantic University GradCAS Application. Due to a high volume of applications and the time needed to receive and process transcripts and application fees, the application may take up to 2 weeks to complete. Costs of the application are the responsibility of the applicant.

GradCAS is the centralized application service for students applying to the nurse practitioner concentrations. You will submit your application, supplemental materials listed under admissions requirements, and request a letter of reference through GradCAS. All documents must be received in GradCAS by the published application deadline. Please note: You will request the letter of reference electronically in GradCAS. Be prepared with a reference name and current e-mail address. GradCAS requires their own set of official transcripts. 

Incomplete applications will not be considered. Applications with missing documents/transcripts are considered incomplete.

All admission requirements must be completed before the application deadline.

Once an applicant has been accepted into a concentration, a gap analysis will be completed to determine the required courses for each student.  Available space and the gap analysis will be used to determine an entry date. Students must provide syllabi and/or course descriptions from other institutions for all transfer courses.
