Certificate in Hospital & Acute Care for Nurse Practitioners

The Certificate in Hospital & Acute Care for Nurse Practitioners builds upon the foundational knowledge acquired through entry to practice education and the acquisition of entry-to-practice competencies. The not-for-credit certificate program will equip Nurse Practitioners with the knowledge and tools to confidently assess and develop a treatment plan for the acutely ill adult patient, hospitalized with a broad range of conditions, and facilitate a foundation for advanced nursing care of the ill or critically ill patient. The program will consist of four courses offered by distance education through the University of Toronto Learning Portal. Each course will be 7-8 weeks in length (including a final week for evaluation), plus a week for completion of the final assignment. Learners may take the courses in any sequence and will earn a certificate by completing all four courses over a 2-year period.
