Physicians | Nurse Practitioners | Respiratory Therapist

A Pediatric Nurse Practitioner (or PNP) is a registered nurse (RN) who has experience in pediatrics, has completed a formal education program, at a master's or doctorate level, and a great deal of hands-on training. All PNPs must pass a national certification exam and are required to complete additional continuing education yearly to assure quality care. The PNPs are available to see infants, children and adolescents for well exams as well as sick visits. In this expanded role, PNPs make independent decisions about patients' health care needs. Nurse practitioners also work in cooperation with the physicians when medical backup for patient care decisions is necessary.
