School Nurse Certification

Curriculum Overview

The Post-BSN School Nurse Certification curriculum is a minimum of 8 credits (2 classes). The nursing and education faculty members use various strategies to help you learn, including case studies, lecture/discussion, group projects and simulation exercises to ensure that what you gain in one course will reinforce and build on what you learn in others.

Students with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) from an accredited college or university and a GPA of at least 3.0 are eligible for entry into the program. The following undergraduate credit hours are required for certification requirements, and may be completed at Alvernia as a part of the student’s coursework if not already successfully completed elsewhere: Composition and Literature (6 credits), Mathematics (6 credits), and Educational Psychology (3 credits). 

Curriculum (minimum 8 credits)
