Certificate education is a well-established nursing education strategy used when practicing nurses need to acquire specialized knowledge quickly and efficiently to better care for patients. In the Contemporary RN Case Manager Certificate Program of study, participants demonstrate mastery of a specific body of knowledge over a specified time period. Upon successful completion of the program, a Certificate of Completion is awarded, demonstrating this knowledge, and building on your nursing degree.
5 Reasons Why Nurses Choose to Complete a Certificate Program:
- Document Achievement: The Certificate of Completion demonstrates specialized knowledge you have acquired to assist you in advancing your career, improving your job prospects and increasing your salary.
- Develop and Update Professional Skills and Knowledge: Certificate Programs offer an efficient and effective way to enhance your nursing knowledge in a specific area of practice.
- Prepare for a new or expanded role: Rather than relying on “on the job training” which can be limited or employer dependent, certificate education provides a framework for role and skill development consistent with national nursing standards and evidence.
- Build Confidence and Professional Success: Nurses who complete a Certificate Program of study gain mastery, build confidence and position themselves for professional success.
- Provide Value-Added Benefits: Employers, colleagues and patients recognize the benefits of working with RNs who build on their professional education and experiences by acquiring new knowledge to improve care.
