The Neonatal Clinical Nurse Specialist pathway is designed to prepare skilled Clinical Nurse Specialists to provide care for low and high-risk neonates and their families in a variety of settings. Graduates of this program are registered nurses with advanced education who are able to assess, make diagnoses, manage health care, prescribe medicines, and evaluate care for patients.
The CNS pathway offers part-time and full-time options to fit the schedules of working nurses. Many classes are offered online but there are on-campus learning requirements in some classes. On-campus learning consists of standardized patient visits, labs with clinical skills and physical assessments, and objective structured clinical exams.

The Neonatal Clinical Nurse Specialist curriculum prepares graduates to apply for and sit for the Neonatal Clinical Nurse Specialist certification exam.
