Each nurse practitioner's specific needs will be assessed through a pre-test and assessment of the applicant profile. For the more experienced nurse practitioner who is dually certified as a FNP and ACNP and who has emergency department experience, as few as 135 clinical hours can be done to complete the training program. For the less experienced nurse practitioner, clinical hours will be approximately 200 hours. A post-test and clinical check off will be performed on each nurse practitioner before he/she completes the training program.
