Pediatric-focused advanced practice registered nurse (APRN) is a broad term that includes PNPs, family nurse practitioners (FNPs), clinical nurse specialists (CNSs) and other APRNs who care for children. Regardless of specific titles, all are advanced practice registered nurses and health care providers dedicated to improving children’s health in primary, acute and specialty care settings. We have been providing quality health care to children and families for nearly 50 years in an extensive range of practice settings, such as pediatric offices, in-patient hospitals, specialty clinics, school-based health centers and urgent and convenient care clinics, reaching millions of patients across the country each year. APRNs spend significant one-on-one time with patients and families.
PNPs and their fellow pediatric-focused APRNs serve as pediatric health care providers for children of all ages. Many parents choose an APRN as their child’s health care provider knowing they will receive individualized quality health care focused on the long-term well-being of the child and the family.
