Major: Nurse Practitioner , Pediatric Primary Care Degree Awarded: Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) Calendar Type: Quarter Total Credit Hours: 52.0 quarter credits; 640 clinical hours Co-op Option : None Classification of Instructional Programs (CIP) code: 51.3809 Standard Occupational Classification (SOC) code: 29-1171 About the Program The online Pediatric Primary Care Nurse Practitioner (PNP) program is directed toward preparing nurse practitioners who will take advanced nursing roles as clinicians, educators, researchers, and leaders in the rapidly changing, evidence-driven healthcare environment. The program emphasizes evidence-based practice, interdisciplinary collaboration, and critical use of evolving technology in the care of children and their families. While most pediatric nurse practitioners practice in primary care settings, the continuum of child healthcare spans the geographic settings of home care, ambulatory care, specialty care, urgent care, and rehabilitative care. Pediatric primary care nurse practitioners provide advanced nursing care across the continuum of healthcare services to meet the specialized physiologic and psychological needs of patients from infancy through adolescence, and have competencies to manage well-child care as well as complex, acute, and chronic healthcare conditions within a family-centered healthcare model. Graduates are eligible to sit for the ANCC’s Pediatric Primary Care Nurse Practitioner Examination and/or the PNCB’s Pediatric Primary Care Nurse Practitioner Examination. The nurse practitioner faculty is committed to quality and excellence in the nurse practitioner (NP) programs. Students meet on campus for mandatory On Campus Intensive (OCI) learning experiences, simulations and evaluation. OCI visits occur as a part of the clinical portion of the program. Mandatory on-campus visits are essential to students transitioning into the NP role.  During the OCIs, students engage in simulated clinical learning experiences conducted in the College of Nursing and Health Professions' state-of-the-art, multidisciplinary patient simulation lab. These visits provide direct guidance and mentoring from faculty, as well as the opportunity to collaborate with peers. The program is accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education.
