Global Disaster Studies Graduate Certificate

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: College of Nursing

The College of Nursing offers certificates for nurses who need additional training. A master’s degree in nursing is required for admission.

The total hours will vary depending on the student’s academic record, clinical experience, and objectives. Students must complete a minimum of 12 hours. Most students complete 16-20 hours of course credit with the exception of those pursuing certificates in global disaster nursing, nurse anesthesia, or women and children: neonatal, where additional hours are required. The nurse anesthesia certificate program requires students who have completed the master’s degree in nursing within the preceding five years to complete 60-70 hours of course credit. Contact the MSN chair for more information.

The interdisciplinary graduate certificate in global disaster studies is available to those who seek to gain specialized knowledge and skills related to the prevention and management of catastrophic incidents or large scale public health emergencies that result in mass casualties, whether the cause is naturally occurring, accidental, or terrorism. Admission to the certificate program is selective and requires either admission to the University of Tennessee graduate degree seeking program or an earned master’s degree in any relevant field, as well as relevant work experience. A degree in nursing is not required.

The certificate program is composed of 24 hours: NURS 532  (3), NURS 533  (5), NURS 534  (5), NURS 537  (3), NURS 592  (2), graduate-level epidemiology (3 hours), and an approved elective (3 hours).
