Pediatric Nursing Colleges in Maine - ME

Pediatric nurse practitioner programs in Maine can be found in nursing schools located within traditional colleges, universities and online. In order to enroll in a PNP training program, one must first have a Maine registered nurse license and have completed undergraduate nursing studies. Education for PNPs in Maine consists of getting a master’s or doctoral degree, as in 2006 the state mandated a minimum of a master’s degree for all NPs working within the state.

PNP education will be similar to NP education in Maine, with many of the same courses being taken. However, PNPs will study assessment, diagnosis and treatment of children and adolescents as their special focus. A PNP’s clinical training will also be targeted to this area, with PNP students working with children and adolescents in settings where real PNPs work, such as medical facilities, physician’s offices, schools, and community and public health centers. Many hospitals throughout Maine have agreements with nursing schools and allow NP students to fulfill the clinical training requirements of their program there. Some of the hospitals that could potentially provide training or employment for PNPs include Mercy Hospital, Maine Medical Center, St. Joseph’s Hospital, and Brighton Medical Center.

Before a PNP can become licensed in Maine, he or she must take an exam to become certified to practice in pediatrics. Certification agencies that are often chosen include the Pediatric Nursing Certification Board and the American Nurses Credentialing Center.
