What You’ll Learn
South College’s Master of Science in Nursing program with Concentration in Pediatric Nurse Practitioner (PNP) is a flexible and affordable way to work toward advancing your career. Innovative, challenging, and comprehensive, the MSN PNP program is designed to further develop the critical thinking and analytical skills needed in today’s competitive and evolving healthcare environments.
Our blended approach to education combines cutting-edge online coursework with hands-on clinical practice experiences. And best of all, our hybrid format is designed to accommodate the schedules of working nursing professionals. The program is designed for completion in 18 months full-time.
Pediatric nurse practitioners provide primary care for infants, young children, and adolescents up to 21 years of age. They analyze assessment data, lab work, and diagnostic tests to establish a diagnosis for their patients. PNP duties include a great deal of interaction with children and their parents, working alongside pediatricians in a variety of settings.
MSN-PNP students are able to tailor their learning to their long-term professional objectives through topic selection for course papers and projects, and by recommending their own clinical sites for practicum components (must be approved by South College).
