The UCSF School of Nursing offers several special studies options for both master's and doctoral prepared nurses.
The Post-Master’s Certificate Program is for Master’s prepared nurses pursuing state certification in a specialty area or seeking a program of study that may lead to a change in role.
- With California facing an urgent and growing shortage of mental health professionals, the UCSF School of Nursing, in collaboration with the UC Davis and UCLA Schools of Nursing, have launched a new online certificate program that will prepare 300 psychiatric mental health nurse practitioners (PMHNPs) by 2025. Learn more about our new Post-Master's offering on the PMHNP specialty webpage and start your application on the UCSF Graduate Division application portal. Applications will be reviewed and accepted through May 1, 2020.
Postdoctoral studies are arranged by individual request depending upon specific areas of interest and availability of resources within those areas.
