Education Level required for Career
It’s necessary to obtain an undergraduate education before beginning neonatal nursing studies. Community/junior colleges offer associate degrees in nursing (two-year programs) whereas four-year institutions offer bachelor’s degrees (four-year programs). None of these programs offer nursing specialty tracks, but some may have optional neonatal nursing electives available.
Aspiring neonatal advanced practice nurses must complete either a master’s degree or Doctor of Nursing Practice Degree in Neonatal Nursing. These graduate programs are typically two to three years in length.
