Program Overview

 

The Master of Science in Nursing Pediatric Nurse Practitioner Track (PNP) prepares graduates to assume the role of a healthcare provider dedicated to improving children's health. Pediatric Nurse Practitioners serve children and families in an extensive range of practice settings providing for well and ill children of all ages. Some of the services of Pediatric Nurse Practitioners include well-child examinations, routine developmental screenings, diagnoses and treatment of common childhood illnesses, childhood immunizations, school physicals and health maintenance care. The PNP is an online track that requires occasional travel to the Lubbock campus.

A Post-Master's Pediatric Nurse Practitioner Certificate is available to those who currently hold a Master of Science in Nursing and wish to assume a specialized role in children's health care.

Upon completion of course requirements, and one (1) year experience, graduates of the Masters and Post-Master's Programs are eligible to sit for the Pediatric Nurse Certification Board (PNCB) Exam and the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) Exam.
