Acute Care Pediatric Nurse Practitioner Programs

The National Council of State Boards of Nursing, the National Task Force Criteria, and the APRN National Consensus Model include recommendations that all states require nurse practitioners to have congruence between education, national certification, and clinical practice. While a few states may not currently require national certification for licensure, your employer may require certification or you may move to another state that requires it.Textbook and stethescope
