LEARN MORE AND APPLY
The Traditional Pathway is a blended education program. It is comprised of online clinical courses, onsite skills training (Bridge Week), a comprehensive final exam, clinical with an approved preceptor, and completion of the professional practice course.
The Experiential Pathway allows RN's that already have direct patient clinical hours in a specialty to expedite the certification process. All hours must be post-Baccalaureate. You can combine pathways. For example, certify via the experiential pathway for one specialty and the traditional pathway for others.Learn More
