- MSN - Adult/Gerontology/Acute Care Nurse Practitioner
- MSN - Adult/Gerontology/Primary Care Nurse Practitioner
- MSN - Family Nurse Practitioner

For more information about nurse practitioner certification exams, students should visit the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners at www.aanpcertification.org, American Nurses Credentialing Center at www.nursecredentialing.org, or other nurse practitioner certification websites.
