ON-CAMPUS REQUIREMENTS

This is a high-quality program that demands a major commitment of time by advanced practice nursing students. Because students are being educated to diagnose and treat patients, the program was designed to combine the convenience of online learning with the necessary rigor to become a highly competent, confident Pediatric Primary Care Nurse Practitioner upon graduation.
