Neonatal Nurse Practitioner Program in Utah - UT

Neonatal nurse practitioner programs in Utah are intended for students who already have a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree. Education options for potential neonatal nurse practitioners include getting a Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) or a Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP). Schools exist throughout Utah and online that offer ways for students with a bachelor degree and registered nurse license to achieve either goal. Some schools require that students have one or two years of experience working as an RN in Utah prior to admission to a graduate program.

Courses that one will take in any neonatal nurse practitioner program focus on acute and chronic disorders in neonates. Physiology, pathophysiology, anatomy, endocrinology, and other courses specific to neonates will be included. In addition, clinical experiences are required, and may be held at institutions across Utah including Intermountain Medical Center in Murray, Saint Mark's Hospital in Salt Lake City, Saint Luke’s Hospital in Park City, University of Utah Health Care University Hospital in Salt Lake City and Utah Valley Regional Medical Center in Provo.

Graduates of MSN or DNP programs will be prepared to take the National Certification Corporation’s Neonatal Nurse Practitioner exam. The paper and pencil version of the exam is offered once yearly, while the computerized version of the test is offered on an ongoing basis.  Results of the exam are mailed out about three weeks after it is taken. Then, you may apply to the Utah Division of Occupational and Professional Licensing for Advanced Practice Registered Nurse status in the state.
