Neonatal nurse practitioners (NNP) and pediatric nurse practitioners (PNP) require knowledge of pharmacologic principles, and medications prescribed to treat infant and pediatric populations. Professional certifying and state licensing agencies require that a specialized course in neonatal and or pediatric pharmacologic be part of the curriculum meeting the standards for education. One method of providing this content is online education. Online education is one method of educating advance practice nurses in the principles and treatments in pharmacologic science, as part of their neonatal/pediatric curriculum. Online learning accommodates a variety of student lifestyles. Access to the course materials is available around the clock. A variety of different learning styles are supported in the online learning environment, including opportunities for exploration. Curriculum utilizing this modality to graduate nursing students allows the student to participate in higher education, encompassing great distances, while attending to their required course work. Thomas Jefferson University College of Health Professions (TJU) and Arizona State University (ASU), departments of Neonatal /Pediatric nurse practitioner programs have collaborated to create and share an online Neonatal Pediatric Pharmacology course. These courses will be offered at each respected university, to all NNP and PNP graduate students. This presentation will include an overview of the pedagogical principles and outcome objectives that guided the development of the courses. Participants will be provided with a demonstration of one module along with information related to the ?lived experience?. The university?s collaboration allows graduate who are experts in neonatal /pediatric nursing and on line education to share in knowledge and teaching methods. Summative and formative evaluations of this collaboration will be completed by all students at the end of each semester. ASU and TJU will share the evaluations, and revise the curriculum to assure it content is current and applicable to advance practice of infants and children.
