The Pediatric Nurse Practitioner (PNP) certificate is a four-semester, part-time opportunity for working registered nurses. Campus experiences complement online course content for learning and demonstrating health assessment skills. Graduates of the PNP specialty are registered nurses who have advanced education in pediatric nursing beyond the initial registered nurse preparation.
The PNP certificate is not offered every year. Interested applicants should contact the College of Nursing Office of Student Affairs to verify that the certificate will be offered at the time of application. To qualify for entry into the PNP graduate certificate program, you must have a Master of Science degree in nursing. The program requires a minimum of 26 credits and 720 clinical hours.
