Pediatric Nurse Practitioner
The role of nurse practitioner specializing in Pediatric Nursing is offered at the University of South Alabama College of Nursing. The MSN program prepares graduates for advanced nursing practice and for doctoral study. Graduates of the program are able to synthesize and apply advanced knowledge, theories, and research to a specialized area of nursing practice and function as leaders in practice to contribute to the advancement of the nursing profession.
A common core of courses are offered online including concepts, theory, research, and issues related to advanced nursing practice. Clinical requirements can usually be completed with preceptors in the students’ home community.
