Choosing a Pediatric Nurse Practitioner Program

Exploring the next step in your career? Deciding between pediatric nurse practitioner (PNP) and family nurse practitioner (FNP) roles? Or maybe you encourage others to choose the PNP role?
PNCB's new *free* continuing education module, Choosing a Pediatric Nurse Practitioner Program, helps nurses to understand questions to answer about programs before applying and make a personalized action plan when starting this important educational journey. An in-depth focus on the differences between the acute care, primary care, and dual AC/PC PNP role is provided.
After completing this module, learners will be able to:

  • Differentiate between types of nurse practitioner programs that include care of children and adolescents.
  • Describe key elements of a nurse practitioner program to investigate, including:
    • Degrees and Certificates
    • Accreditation
    • Program Reputation
    • Curriculum
    • Clinical Placement
    • Costs and Financial Aid
  • Identify the first steps in developing an action plan designed to achieve personal career goals.

Please share this information with others who are thinking about advance practice for their future. Certification is not required to learn with PNCB, so please share with colleagues, students, and others with a passion for pediatric nursing care.   

This module is available at no cost, and is worth 1 contact hour upon completion.
