Find a Pediatric Nurse Practitioner

A Pediatric Nurse Practitioner is a licensed medical professional responsible for the general care of patients from infancy to young adulthood. Their duties are similar to that of registered nurses and family doctors. Their additional education allows them to practice independently, or work in tandem with board-licensed physicians. Pediatric NPs can diagnose, prescribe medication, and take charge of their patients’ care. They may act as a substitute for a primary care physician.
