Nursing—Pediatric Nurse Practitioner, Acute and Primary Care, MS
This specialization is designed to prepare nurses with the specialized skills needed to care for children who are at risk across the continuum of care. For nearly two decades, our pediatric nurse practitioner (PNP) program has prepared primary care PNPs to provide community-based, culturally sensitive care. More recently, building on our foundation in evidence-based, interdisciplinary, urban healthcare, we expanded the PNP program into acute care. Students may study either full-time or part-time.
