Online, Graduate-Credit Only Programs

  • The University of Cincinnati College of Nursing is offering an online 45-Hour advanced pharmacology course that non-students may take for graduate credit (not as continuing education).   This will fulfill the requirements for APRN licensure for APRNs without a CTP who have not taken the course in the last five years.  The cost is $724 per graduate credit hour or $2,172 total.   If you want to take the course, you must first complete the paperwork for non-UC student status and then the permission form at this LINK.    UC has plans to set up the course for continuing education credits (instead of graduate credit) for the Fall semester.  If you have any questions, please contact Sherry Donaworth at:  donawosh@ucmail.uc.edu.

Other schools we have determined are offering or will be offering are below.

If you know about any other schools offering the course as continuing education, please let us know by sending an e-mail to info@oaapn.org. OAAPN is working to put together a comprehensive list.
