Master of Science in Nursing and Post Master's Certificate

The AC PNP program, formally known as the Pediatric Critical Care Nurse Practitioner Program (PCCNP), is designed to prepare experienced pediatric nurses for roles as advanced practice nurses in the subspecialty care of infants and children with complex acute/chronic conditions.

The graduate core and advanced practice nursing core courses emphasize the curricula requirements as outlined in the Essentials of Master’s Education for Advanced Practice Nursing by the American Association of Colleges of Nursing. This coursework is available in on-line and/or compressed formats for distance students. Students must have at least two years of recent pediatric experience and current Pediatric Advanced Life Support training before advancing to the specialty curriculum. The AC PNP specialty curriculum starts with a core knowledge set of pediatric concepts ranging from normal growth and development through health screening and maintenance. It then advances to provide in-depth education into specialty practice for nurse practitioners working with infants, children, and their families with complex health care needs. Specialty courses are provided in a combination of live and compressed formats. Graduates are prepared to meet the Acute Care Nurse Practitioner Competencies as defined by the National Organization of Nurse Practitioner Faculties.

Graduates receive a Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) degree.

Post-Master’s Certificate study is also available and is individualized for each student based on previous graduate education and advanced practice nursing experience.
