Thank you for your interest in the Graduate Practice Programs at UNC-Chapel Hill.

We offer two degree programs to prepare nurses for advanced nursing practice:

Currently, two Post-Master’s Certificate programs are offered:

  • Health Care Systems
  • Psychiatric-Mental Health Nurse Practitioner

All programs are campus-based. Courses are offered in a variety of formats and delivery methods including traditional, web-facilitated, hybrid, and online. The curriculum provides specialized knowledge and practice opportunities in the advanced nursing option selected upon application to the program.

Clinical practice sites are generally located in central North Carolina, but may extend across the state and require travel of up to 1.5-2 hours one-way. Upon graduation, graduates are eligible to sit for the national certification examinations associated with their respective population or specialty area of practice.
