SoNHS Launches New ACPNP Program

The University of Missouri Kansas City (UMKC) School of Nursing and Health Studies (SoNHS) is pleased to announce a new Acute Care Pediatric Nurse Practitioner (ACPNP) Program. The expertise of local faculty will provide the needed context to frame the essential content and clinical experiences related to management of the acute care pediatric clients. All theory course work is taken online with expert faculty and all clinical practicum arrangements will be set up for students, with the help of their faculty, in their state of residence.

The ACPNP program has a robust curriculum for students while effectively capitalizing on available ACPNP faculty resources at UMKC to meet the needs for expanding clinical roles across the Midwest. Students are admitted to this program after meeting the criteria for admission and complete courses required for the major at UMKC. Please contact Dr. Cheri Barber barberch@umkc.edu for more information or consult our SoNHS website under academic programs.
