Post-Baccalaureate Certificate in Nursing Case Management

Post-Baccalaureate Certificate in Nursing Case Management

Apply Now!
The Department of Undergraduate Nursing offers a program leading to a Post-Baccalaureate Certificate (P.B.C.) in nursing case management. This program offers foundational knowledge related to the practice of case management. It does not provide practice hours to meet national certification requirements, however. Students will be exposed to the different aspects of case management. The program is offered online exclusively.

Note: Even though the curriculum is comprised of undergraduate coursework, students enrolled in the program are classified as graduate students because they already hold baccalaureate degrees.

Prospective Students
A student pursuing the P.B.C. in nursing case management must hold a baccalaureate degree in nursing from an accredited institution and an unencumbered R.N. license. Nursing professionals interested in challenging and diverse roles in high-quality patient experiences and improved healthcare outcomes are strong candidates for admission to the program.
