The Nell Hodgson Woodruff School of Nursing will not accept applications to its Neonatal Nurse Practitioner program during the 2024 admission cycle.
Our NNP specialty master’s program is one of a handful of NNP programs in the country that prepares nurses for practice across the continuum of care. The program prepares nurses as advanced practice providers who are skilled in performing comprehensive assessments, diagnostic evaluations, and symptom and disease management for neonates and infants through age two. This focus includes health promotion, disease prevention, health maintenance, parental counseling, education, diagnose and treatment of acute and chronic illnesses in a variety of health care settings. All aspects of advanced nursing practice are explored from an evidenced-based approach, including roles of educator, researcher, consultant, and advocate. Students complete more than 700 hours of direct patient care in primary, acute and critical care. The online format means working nurses do not need to give up employment or relocate to the Atlanta area to become a Neonatal Nurse Practitioner at Emory University.
