Certification & Licensure

General Disclosure


The US Department of Education requires the Clinical Perfusion program to provide professional licensure information to students regarding academic programs that lead to a professional licensure or certification that is required for employment. Professional licensure/certification requirements vary from state to state, which may affect a student’s ability to apply for a professional license/certification upon the completion of the program.

Please check with your advisor, department chair, or certification officer for further details.

Master of Perfusion Science Program

All candidates for licensure as a clinical perfusionist in the state of Nebraska must have graduated from an accredited (ACPE, Accreditation Commission of Perfusion Education) Clinical Perfusion program and satisfactorily completed the Clinical Perfusion Certifying Exam offered by the American Board of Cardiovascular Perfusion (ABCP).

States other than Nebraska may have additional requirements for licensure. Requirements such as fingerprinting, background checks, and other requirements may vary between states. Not every state requires perfusion licensure. But for those that require licensure, and those that might require licensure in the future, we will meet all of the requirements for that licensure with our perfusion curriculum.
