As more hospitals, clinics and health professionals depend on technology to help with the delivery, management and planning of health care, the understanding of health informatics has become a vital skill for nurses and other health care providers.
Texas Woman’s University offers an online program in interprofessional informatics intended for a multi-professional audience looking to build a foundation in health care informatics. Participants who successfully complete the program will earn a post-baccalaureate certification in the discipline.
Ready to step into advanced practice? Shifting to an administrative role? Exploring cutting edge nursing practice? Already have your masters of science in nursing? The post-master's certificate will help you take the next step.
Continue to stay ahead of the curve — in the clinic and the classroom. Individuals who have a master's degree in nursing may be considered for admission to a post-master’s certification program in one of three areas:

Factors that may be considered in the admission decision are: GPA on any prior graduate course work, scholarly activities, professional leadership, and work history.
For applicants who have a baccalaureate degree in nursing and a master's degree in another field (or more than one graduate degree), the grade point average from all previously earned degrees and post-graduate work can be considered in making the admission decision.
Individuals who have a master’s degree in nursing may seek admission to a post-master’s certification program in one of three areas: nurse practitioner, nursing health systems management, or nursing education.
Applicants who wish to transfer from another nursing program must provide evidence of eligibility to continue in the previous nursing program. Nine semester hours for programs requiring 39-44 semester hours, 12 semester hours for programs requiring 45 or more semester hours, may be transferred, if approved. A grade of B or higher in each course is necessary for semester credit hours to be considered for transfer.
