NPCSI: Pediatric Acute Care Nurse Practitioner

Students using a simulation human


All students in the Pediatric Acute Care Nurse Practitioner specialty are required to attend one* mandatory Clinical Skills Intensive provided by the USA Simulation Program during the fall term in which they are registered for MCN 558 and MCN 571.

The clinical skills intensive provides hands-on instruction for common advanced practice assessments and procedures pertinent to the pediatric acute care setting.

Students have the opportunity to request their preferred session on a first come, first serve basis.  Simulation will contact students via Jag Mail with information on how to sign-up three months prior to the scheduled dates. 

Please note the dates are for Clinical Skills Intensives only. The track coordinator may provide orientation dates, which are separate from CSI and Simulation.

  • Session 1 - August 19-20, 2024

*Students delaying progression during their specialty courses should reference the Clinical Skills Intensive Policy located in their College of Nursing admission packet to see additional requirements related to CSI.
