“The Advanced Practice Certificate course is not clinical supervision, but is the closest thing to it that I’ve seen in a curriculum. It combines top-notch case-based learning with the very best clinical mentorship. Anyone who goes through the course and invests in their learning, should be well prepared for the certification exam.”
