Pediatric Primary & Acute Care NP: BSN to DNP

The Pediatric Primary & Acute Care Nurse Practitioner Dual specialty is engaged in a Collaborative with the nursing programs from the University of Kansas City Missouri (UMKC) and the University of Iowa (UI). The expertise of the faculty will provide the needed context to frame the essential content related to management of the acute care pediatric clients. All clinical practicum arrangements are the responsibility of the faculty at the home institution. This innovative Collaborative allows all institutions to provide a robust curriculum to students while effectively capitalizing on available PNP-AC faculty resources to meet the needs for expanding clinical roles across the Midwest
