How long is the Functional Medicine for Nurses Certificate Program? How much time will I need to complete the coursework?

This program is 62 contact hours divided over the course of 12 weeks. This course was designed with working nurses in mind, so you should expect to spend 6-8 hours per week on your coursework. Weekly due dates for assignments will be clearly explained in each module, but you will not be required to attend any class at a specific time. Beyond assignment due dates, your timed open book final exam will be open over a specific period of time (i.e. 72 hours), during which you may retake the test if you do not pass it the first time.
