Why study Neonatal Nursing?
The Master of Science in Nursing in Neonatal Nurse Practitioner program prepares students to provide comprehensive care for pre-term and term neonates, infants and toddlers through 2 years of age. Our program offers fully online coursework and flexible scheduling.
Applicants must have a Bachelor of Science in Nursing from an accredited nursing school and at least one or two years of full-time acute care work experience as a registered nurse. Qualifying acute care settings include a level II or III neonatal intensive care unit, pediatric intensive care unit or cardiac intensive care unit.

Graduates of this specialty meet educational requirements to take exams for national certification. Neonatal Nurse Practitioners (NNPs) provide comprehensive care for patients, whether born healthy, premature or with an infection, genetic condition, heart malformation, surgical diagnosis or other issue.
NNPs work in pediatric clinics and hospitals, often in emergency and delivery rooms or neonatal intensive care units.
