Pediatric Nurse Practitioner Program
Nurse practitioner students who pursue the pediatric specialty will provide high-quality health care to children of all ages across the health continuum, from healthy children to those with acute and chronic health problems.
You’ll gain the skills and knowledge to perform well-child care and developmental screening, treat common childhood illnesses, and provide anticipatory guidance for children and parents.
Graduates of the Pediatric Nurse Practitioner program are prepared to address the many behavioral health issues faced in pediatric primary care, including ADHD, bullying, and risk-taking behaviors. They work in primary care offices, school-based health centers, hospital and specialty practices, and pediatric emergency departments.
To earn your master’s degree as a pediatric nurse practitioner you’ll need to complete 45 credits and 616 clinical hours.
