Post-Master’s Certificate Program – Pediatric Primary Care Nurse Practitioner
(43 Total Credit Hours)
The purpose of the post-master’s certificate program is to enable registered nurses who hold a master degree in another nursing specialty area to gain the knowledge and skills required for certification as a pediatric nurse practitioner. Core courses required for students in their original master degree nursing program will be evaluated for equivalency to the required post-master’s certificate courses. Past education and experience will be evaluated to determine which required core courses may be waived because of equivalency with GSU courses. Graduates of the Pediatric Nurse Practitioner option are employed in a variety of pediatric clinical settings and are eligible for national certification by the Pediatric Nursing Certification Board (PNCB).
