Pediatric Acute Care Nurse Practitioner Program Description
The proposed certificate program prepares experienced Pediatric Nurse Practitioners to serve as Pediatric Nurse Practitioners in Acute care. Graduates of Johns Hopkins School of Nursing Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) Program who wish to expand their expertise beyond primary care to the acute care of children will experience a vigorous academic program and will benefit from rich and varied clinical opportunities to provide acute care to children across a variety of care settings throughout the continuum of care. With access to Hopkins faculty and learning resources, graduates will develop and apply advanced skills in the assessment, diagnosis, and management of health problems encountered in acutely ill children. Graduates of this program will be eligible to apply for the Pediatric Nursing Certification Board’s pediatric acute care certification exam.
