This two-day course is designed to prepare graduates of acute care PNP programs for the Pediatric Nursing Certification Board (PNCB) acute care certification exam. We will focus on system-based acute care content and the role of the PNP in assessment, diagnosis and management of children with acute, critical and complex pediatric illnesses. Course faculty will integrate practice questions into each content area, using an audience response system, to assist in exam preparation.
