Critical Care Concentration

Through intensive coursework and an eight-month clinical preceptorship, you’ll be equipped to deliver comprehensive assessment and management of acute physical health problems, as well as to provide education and consultation for families and health providers.

You’ll also learn how to coordinate services and to work collaboratively through interdisciplinary practice. Students may complete this 12 course-unit program in one calendar year as a full-time student. A part-time option is also available. Please inquire with the Admissions Office or the Program Director for more information.

Graduates are eligible to become certified by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania as Pediatric Acute Care Certified Registered Nurse Practitioners (CRNP). Successful completion of the program qualifies graduates to apply for national certification from the Pediatric Nursing Certification Board (PNCB) as a PNP-Acute Care, as well as recognition, certification, and/or certification, and/or licensure by other states.
