FAQ

How long does it take to become a pediatric nurse practitioner?

Answer

Current RNs can potentially become a pediatric nurse practitioner in 2-3 years.

  • Associate degree RNs can complete our Accelerated RN to MSN-PNP program in as few as 28 months
  • Bachelor’s degree RNs can earn an MSN-PNP in as few as 24 months, or 2 years
  • Master's degree RNs can earn a post master's certificate in as few as 20 months

For those who have yet to become an RN, you’ll need additional time to first earn an associatebachelor’s, or master's degree in nursing before pursuing an MSN.
