MSN Pediatric Primary Care Nurse Practitioner Track

Graduate Department APRN Program


The Master of Science in Nursing Pediatric Primary Care Nurse Practitioner Track (PNP-PC) prepares graduates to assume the role of a healthcare provider dedicated to improving children's health. Pediatric Primary Care 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 Primary Care 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-PC is an online program that requires occasional travel to the Lubbock campus.

A Post-Masters Pediatric Primary Care Nurse Practitioner Certificate is also 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 Masters are eligible to sit for the Pediatric Nurse Certification Board (PNCB) Exam and the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) Exam.
