MS in Nursing with Emphasis in Pediatric Nurse Practitioner

As of February 1, 2011, the MU Sinclair School of Nursing no longer accepts applications for the master's Pediatric Nurse Practitioner area of study. After this date, students should apply to the Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) program.

Our PNP area of study is a cooperative effort with the three University of Missouri campuses-Columbia, Kansas City and St. Louis. This cooperation allows for the delivery of pediatric nurse practitioner education using the expertise from each campus. 


Applicants are required to meet two sets of minimum qualifications for admission: the requirements of the MS in Nursing program and the minimum requirements of the Graduate School.  Because requirements vary, you must refer to a degree program's graduate admission page to learn about specific admission criteria, application deadlines, eligibility and application process.  Your application materials will be reviewed by both the Graduate School and the degree program to which you’ve applied before official admission to the University of Missouri.
