Program Details

Take both your career and your degree to the next level with the Doctor of Nursing Practice in Pediatric Primary Care Nurse Practitioner program online.  Students at Johns Hopkins University are able to complete this flexible, primarily online degree in either a three or a four year program option while still keeping their current careers.  Regardless of which timeline you choose to follow, you will gain the knowledge and skills needed to practice at an advanced level, providing evidence-based family centered care to patients ranging in age from birth through adolescence.

As a pediatric primary care nurse practitioner, you will treat patients in a variety of settings, providing initial, ongoing, and comprehensive care.  As their provider, you will competently assess, diagnose, and treat acute and chronic illnesses and offer such preventive health care options as health promotion, disease prevention, and health education and counseling.  While most graduates practice in private offices, community clinics, or schools, some will choose to work in program-based specialty areas that manage chronically ill patients.    

Graduates are eligible to sit for certification exams.
