Nursing Education Certificate

The Graduate Certificate in Nursing Education is open to matriculated graduate students or individuals who have already earned their MS Nursing. The certificate is designed for individuals who are interested in becoming nursing faculty. It is expected that applicants have an area of expertise in nursing from which to base their teaching. Graduate students enrolled in the master's degree programs will develop knowledge and skills in community health, family, or gerontological nursing. Post-master's students already possess an area of expertise or specialization.

The certificate application deadline is rolling.

Admission Requirements*

Applicants must submit the Graduate School's required admission materials:

  • Online graduate degree application and application fee
  • Official transcript(s) from each college/university at which you earned a degree (Current Binghamton University graduate students or individuals also applying to a master's or doctoral program at Binghamton University do not need to submit transcripts with their certificate application.)

Important note: Funding is not available to non-degree students completing certificate programs. Certificate students are not automatically admitted to master's or doctoral programs. They must meet the admissions requirements of those degree programs and be accepted. Students may concurrently apply for a certificate and a Binghamton University graduate degree program. However, a student cannot be awarded a certificate twice, nor can a student apply work for one certificate to a different certificate. Learn more about graduate certificate programs.

Applicant Qualifications

Applicants must be a matriculated graduate student in the Decker School of Nursing or must already hold an MS in Nursing.

Application materials will be reviewed in total to assess whether applicants bring the necessary skills and experiences to succeed in the program.
