Note on Certification

The MSN nurse practitioner specializations are designed to prepare graduates with an active, unencumbered registered nurse (RN) license to qualify to sit for national nurse practitioner certification exams, which are required for practice as a nurse practitioner in most states. Because no graduate program can guarantee that graduates will be permitted to practice as a nurse practitioner upon graduation, we encourage students to consult the appropriate Board of Nursing or state agency to determine specific certification exam requirements. It is each individual’s responsibility to understand, evaluate, and comply with all requirements relating to national certification exams for the state in which he or she intends to practice as requirements vary widely. American Sentinel College makes no representations or guarantee that completion of American Sentinel coursework or programs will permit an individual to obtain national certification. For more information about nurse practitioner certification exams, students should visit the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners at www.aanpcert.org, the American Nurses Credentialing Center at www.nursingworld.org/ancc.

Note on Licensure, Authorization, Endorsement, or Other State Credential Necessary to Practice as a Nurse Practitioner

The MSN nurse practitioner specializations are designed to prepare graduates with an active, unencumbered registered nurse (RN) license to practice as nurse practitioners. However, each state Board of Nursing has its own academic and certification requirements and issues its own credential for an RN to be permitted to practice as a nurse practitioner in that state. Because no graduate program can guarantee that graduates will be permitted to practice as a nurse practitioner upon graduation, we encourage students to consult the appropriate Board of Nursing or state agency in the state in which he or she wishes to practice to determine specific requirements. It is each individual’s responsibility to understand, evaluate, and comply with all requirements relating to the practice as a nurse practitioner in the state in which he or she intends to practice as requirements vary widely. American Sentinel College makes no representations or guarantee that completion of American Sentinel College coursework or programs will permit an individual to obtain state licensure, authorization, endorsement, or other state credential. For more information about the requirements to practice as a nurse practitioner, students should contact the appropriate Board of Nursing or state agency.

In 2009, American Sentinel University (now the American Sentinel College of Nursing & Health Science at Post University) secured specialized accreditation for its nursing programs. This resulted in a review of all the institution’s programs that were not closely aligned with healthcare. Between 2009 and 2015 with the support of the faculty and Board of Trust, a number of programs were discontinued in order to focus on nursing and healthcare. This increased focus allowed the institution to establish itself as a leader in providing innovative degrees for healthcare professionals. On March 15, 2021, “American Sentinel University” merged with “Post University” becoming the “American Sentinel College of Nursing & Health Science at Post University”.
