New Research on AC PNP Practice

March 2016: PNCB is pleased to announce that a comprehensive research article regarding our third analysis of AC PNP practice is now available from the Journal of Pediatric Health Care. We are excited about this essential addition to the AC PNP literature, and we thank the hundreds of practicing acute care PNPs who participated to ensure the CPNP-AC exam continues to reflect current practice.

PNCB hopes this article supports you and your students. See the article>>

Benefits:

Is your program recognized? See our lists of Primary Care PNP Programs and Acute Care PNP Programs.

Important Note to Faculty: Non-US Based Masters PNP
Program

All post-graduate or post-master's DNP PNP Program applicants must possess a minimum of a Master of Science in Nursing or a Doctorate of Nursing degree from a nationally accredited program. Note: Additional documentation is required for candidates with a Master's or doctorate from a non-US based graduate nursing program. The PNCB requires information documenting the process utilized by PNP program faculty to determine the equivalency of a non-US based or foreign transcript to a nationally accredited US Master's- or doctorate-level nurse practitioner education. Candidates and PNP Program faculty may contact the PNCB to learn more about this requirement.

Important Note to Faculty: Non-US Based PNP Educational
Experiences

The PNCB requires information documenting the process utilized by PNP program faculty to determine the equivalency of a non-US based educational experience. This includes foreign coursework, and clinical experiences that may be applied towards a nationally accredited US Master's- or doctorate-level pediatric nurse practitioner educational program.
