This program is designed to educate licensed physician assistants with sponsored physician support for a role in neonatal care. Our didactic content complements on-the-job clinical training in critical care management of the sick and premature infant.
You will take critical neonatal care content classes online with neonatal nurse practitioner students, providing a unique opportunity for interprofessional education. These advanced neonatal care courses include neonate physiology and pharmacology, and health management for high-risk neonates, such as those with very low birth weight or conditions that require surgery.
One course requires an on-campus visit in Virginia Beach, Va. for neonatal care skills verification and telehealth training.
This academic certificate can be completed in three semesters.
