Nurse Practitioner Programs

Pediatric/Neonatal Nurse Practitioner Program (MS only)

Neonatal nurse practitioners provide advanced nursing care for low- and high-risk neonates and infants, as well as their families, in a variety of settings.

Graduates of this program are unique among nurse practitioners in that they are educated to provide both primary and acute care to infants as they are dually-prepared in pediatric and neonatal nurse practitioner specialties. 

Neonatal Nurse Practitioner graduates from the UR School of Nursing are educated to work in all levels of neonatal inpatient care, transport, acute and chronic care; delivery rooms, and outpatient settings, with the majority practicing in neonatal intensive care units (NICU) across the country.
