Graduate Program Outcomes
Additional Requirements Upon Admission
Transcripts from foreign institutions must be evaluated for transfer equivalency credits by an accredited evaluation service, such as the World Education Services (WES) http://www.wes.org
Graduates from this program will be eligible for certification and registration as a nurse practitioner by New York State Education Department and are also eligible for National Certification as a Pediatric NP - Primary Care.
The Stony Brook University School of Nursing reserves the right to change admission and program criteria to meet prevailing accreditation, regulatory and registration requirements.
Meeting clinical course requirements is dependent upon the availability of appropriate clinical sites and preceptors in a student’s region. The Stony Brook University School of Nursing cannot guarantee the availability of clinical sites and preceptors or the results of clinical contract/affiliation negotiations.
Course Progression Policy
The credits needed to complete the Advanced Certificate Program reflect state and national requirements for certification, as well as national trends. The credits reflect the precepted clinical hours necessary to complete the Advanced Certificate program.
Graduates of Stony Brook's masters program will not be required to make up credits for courses already taken within the School of Nursing. A minimum of 20 credits is required for the certificate. Any student, however, may be required to take additional credits upon the recommendation of the faculty by advisement.
