How Do I Become a Nurse Practitioner in Pennsylvania?

To become an NP in Pennsylvania, you must first complete a Master’s or Doctoral degree program in nursing and obtain national certification in your specialty area, such as family, adult-gerontology, pediatrics, women’s health, or psychiatry/mental health. Pennsylvania requires that NPs apply for additional state certification after receiving national certification.

Once certified, NPs in Pennsylvania have prescriptive authority and can practice autonomously within their specialty scope. Full practice authority legislation allows NPs to evaluate, diagnose, order tests, and prescribe medication without physician oversight.

Pursuing a graduate degree to become an NP enables nurses to take on greater clinical responsibilities and work to the full extent of their education and training. NPs serve as critical care providers helping address the growing demand for compassionate, comprehensive healthcare.
