Healthcare Quality and Patient Safety C.G.S.


Expand Your Understanding of Patient Quality and Safety

The Certificate of Graduate Studies (C.G.S.) in health-care quality and patient safety was designed to meet a key need to expand nurses' understanding of quality and safety. Admission requirements are the same as for the M.S.N. in nursing program, with the exception that the Miller Analogies Test or the GRE are not required. Students who successfully complete the certificate program may transfer to the population/public health nursing M.S.N. option.

Applications for the C.G.S. in health-care quality and patient safety is ongoing and may be submitted at any time. Here we provide information on admission, retention and course requirements, as well as course descriptions.
