The Master of Science with a specialization in Pediatric Nurse Practitioner (PNP) prepares nurses with the specialized skills needed to care for children living in urban settings who are at risk across the continuum of care. For nearly two decades our PNP program has prepared Primary Care PNPs to provide community-based, culturally-sensitive care. More recently, building on our foundation in evidence-based, interdisciplinary, urban healthcare, we expanded the PNP program into Acute Care. We are the only graduate nursing program in New England to prepare Acute Care PNPs.
Students may study either full-time or part-time. A BSN/MS in Nursing is available for RNs with an associate degree or diploma. Nurses who possess an MS degree in Nursing are eligible for the Certificate of Advanced Graduate Study (CAGS) in this specialization.
