When can you see a nurse practitioner?
- For the first few years of life checkups are alternated between the doctor and the nurse practitioner.
- Nurse practitioners work alongside our physicians seeing ill and well children during the week and ill children in our weekend clinics.
Nurse practitioners are registered nurses with advanced education, most often a master in Nursing. This education includes academic and clinical experience in pediatric health and illness, pharmacology, child development, and family dynamics.
Working in collaboration with physicians they provide specialized care for children from birth to young adulthood.
Our nurse practitioners are certified by Pediatric Nursing Certification Board or the American Nursing Credentialing Center.
