Pediatric Nurse Practitioner

The Pediatric Nurse Practitioner (PNP) Post-Master’s Certificate is designed as a non-degree course credit option for nurses with a master’s degree in nursing.* This certificate promotes primary health care skills through didactic education and clinical supervision, which prepares the nurse for licensure by the state of California and for national certification as a Pediatric Nurse Practitioner.

The School of Nursing offers additional post-master’s certificates and graduate nursing programs to help you meet your educational goals.

*Students may be given transfer credits for previous content completed in a master’s degree program.

Program Highlights

“APU understands that health care and spiritual care go hand in hand, that a patient is a person with a soul. I see this exemplary level of care modeled in the classroom as professors integrate Christian faith into every aspect of the program. The relationships built during my time at APU spill over into my career and translate into more complete, compassionate care for my patients.”
