Nursing—Pediatric Nurse Practitioner, Acute and Primary Care, CAGS
The Pediatric Nurse Practitioner, Acute and Primary Care CAG is designed to prepare nurse practitioners (NPs) prepared in different specialties with the skills needed to care for children who are at risk across the continuum of care. For nearly two decades, the School of Nursing's pediatric nurse practitioner (PNP) program has prepared primary care PNPs to provide community-based, culturally-sensitive care. More recently, building on its foundation in evidence-based, interdisciplinary, urban healthcare, the School of Nursing expanded the PNP program into acute care. Students may study either full-time or part-time.
To ensure that all students have the foundation necessary to be successful in this program, each incoming student, regardless of his or her background, must have completed coursework in the following areas with a minimum grade of B.
