Working with infants, children, adolescents, and their families, pediatric nurse practitioners (NPs) promote wellness, prevent illness, conduct well-visit checkups, and treat common diseases and injuries.
Our practitioners mentor students so they can care and advocate for children from various backgrounds and populations. Attending to patients from infancy to adulthood, pediatric NPs help ensure that children get a healthy start while promoting equal access to care.
Pediatric NPs practice in a range of settings including:
Community health centers
Acute care hospitals
