Question by Brianna: Can you have a major in either biology or sociology to become a pediatric nurse practitioner?
My dream is to become a pediatric nurse practitioner but certain schools don’t offer nursing as a major for undergraduate degrees. So if i get a major in biology or sociology can that help me become a pediatric nurse practitioner?
Answer by JL
Nope. You need to become an RN first, which requires a degree in nursing, either an Associates degree or a BSN, depending on your state. Then you go for the MSN or DNP to become a nurse practitioner.
You will need to attend a school that offers a degree in nursing.
