Transition into primary care roles and grow your primary care skills

The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill’s Primary Care RN Certificate is online and self-paced, helping you continue to balance work, life, and your career.

The certificate is designed to prepare a Registered Nurse to work in a primary care or an ambulatory care setting.

According to the Centers for Disease Control, “The National Illness Prevention Strategy is a plan that helps increase the number of Americans who are healthy at every stage of life.”

The Primary Care RN Certificate is offered by UNC-Chapel Hill’s nationally ranked School of Nursing, the Friday Center for Continuing Education, and the North Carolina AHEC (Area Health Education Centers).
