Our Pediatric Nurse Practitioners

Who Are Pediatric Nurse Practitioners?

Pediatric nurse practitioners are registered nurses with advanced academic and clinical education in pediatric health care, pharmacology, child development, and family dynamics. In our office a pediatric nurse practitioner functions in the same manner as a physician. Pediatric nurse practitioners see children from birth to 21 years of age for medical illnesses and well child care. More complex medical problems and behavioral issues may be referred to a physician.
