Post Masters Pediatric Nurse Practitioner Certificate
Overview

The Master of Science in Nursing Pediatric Nurse Practitioner Track (PNP) prepares graduates to assume the role of a healthcare provider dedicated to improving children's health. Pediatric Nurse Practitioners serve children and families in an extensive range of practice settings providing for well and ill children of all ages. Some of the services of Pediatric Nurse Practitioners include well-child examinations, routine developmental screenings, diagnoses and treatment of common childhood illnesses, childhood immunizations, school physicals and health maintenance care. The PNP is an online track that requires occasional travel to the Lubbock campus.
