NPCSI: Post-Graduate Certificate Emergency NP

Students using a simulation human


Students in the Post-Graduate Certificate Emergency NP specialty are required to attend two* NP Clinical Skills Intensives (CSI) provided by the USA Simulation Program.  The first CSI provides hands-on instruction for common advanced practice assessments and procedures pertinent to the emergency clinicals starting that fall. The second phase includes simulation scenarios and standardized patient encounters to demonstrate clinical skills for evaluation prior to completing the program.

Students must sign-up to attend one session for each phase and can select preferred dates on a first come, first serve basis. Simulation will contact students with information via JagMail on how to sign-up three months prior to the scheduled dates.

Please note the dates are for Clinical Skills Intensives only. The track coordinator may provide orientation dates, which are separate from CSI and Simulation.


Phase 1: The first mandatory CSI will cover emergency clinical skills and is offered in May. Students are required to complete clinical skills before the first clinical course NU 571, offered in the fall.

  • Session 1 – May 8-10, 2023


Phase 2: The second mandatory CSI will be during the fall semester when the student is enrolled in the last clinical course NU 577.
