Neonatal critical care is a growing field, and Bouvé is at the forefront of providing experienced nurses with the knowledge, competence, and skill to be in demand across the country. We require applicants to have at least two years of NICU experience before entering our program, and most have more than that. As a registered nurse, you already have a significant base of nursing knowledge. The neonatal nurse practitioner (NNP) program focuses on advanced nursing knowledge and clinical practice. You will:
- Learn advanced diagnostic reasoning
- Carry out independent management of patients and their families
- Develop the expertise necessary to care for high-risk neonates and their families
- Become proficient at delivery room management of high-risk neonates
Our Neonatal Nurse Practitioner graduates at Northeastern University are prepared to make independent decisions in level 2 and level 3 NICUs, drawing on their experience and diagnostic abilities to affect lives every day. This program of study will increase your skills and experience and enable you to sit for the neonatal nurse practitioner certification exam offered by the National Certification Corporation for the obstetric, gynecologic, and neonatal nursing specialties.
