Advanced Practice Forensic Nurse Certificate Program
About the Program
The Advanced Practice Forensic Nurse Certificate Program
(APN-FCP) was developed to educate and prepare advanced practice nurses to assist victims of all ages and help their families deal with the physical, psychological and legal implications of violent crimes in urban, rural and medically underserved areas. The program is highly individualized and clinically focused in order to give students the knowledge and skills necessary to provide hands-on, comprehensive, culturally appropriate, evidence-based and coordinated care to individuals, families and groups. The program also prepares students to educate individuals on violence prevention.
This online program consists of four courses (3 semester hours each), which can be completed in four semesters of part-time study. Applications are accepted for the fall semester only.
The APFN program is a fully online program, and students are assessed
e-tuition. The current e-tuition rate (2012-2013) is $762 per credit hour.
Students currently enrolled in a UIC graduate program are charged range
