Neonatal Nurse Practitioner Program in North Dakota - ND

Neonatal nurse practitioner programs in North Dakota are generally hybrid programs. While you may not find brick and mortar schools in Grand Forks, Fargo or Minot that offer programs in specialized areas like neonatal care, you will find program options online.

Clinical practice is, of course, a necessary part of the process, but you can find a preceptor to supervise you in a medical facility not so far from your home. Babies are, after all, high priority everywhere!

NNPs, like other health professionals who work in the neonatal ward, learn infant resuscitation. They also learn how to care for infants of different gestational ages; they gain the skills necessary to participate in education, outreach, and research activities at facilities like St. Alexius Medical Center, Jamestown Hospital, Dakota Clinic, and Medcenter One Jamestown. Assessment and decision making are also covered, since sometimes the neonatal team faces difficult decisions in terms of what treatments to administer and at what point.

Requirements for licensure in North Dakota include having a current RN license issued by the state or one of its compact states, completing a nationally accredited program in neonatal nursing, and taking national board exams from a certifying agency.
