HIV Care Specialization

The HIV care specialization program is 9 credits in addition to the required number of credits for each specialty. Students enrolled in the advanced practice nursing program who take the HIV care specialization will have clinical placements that focus on HIV care. For current advanced practice nurses who are seeking a specialty certificate, clinical hours will be provided for students to gain hands-on knowledge through a mini-residency program.

Graduates will be eligible to sit for nurse practitioner specialization certification through national certifying bodies. Once nationally certified, graduates will be eligible to sit for the advanced AIDS care registered nurse certification exam.
