Advanced Practice Nursing

Providing extraordinary clinical expertise and advocacy, maximizing the health potential of children.

The Advanced Practice Nursing (APNs) team at Children's Hospital includes more than 100 APNs from various nursing backgrounds who work together to give patients the very best care. Nurse Practitioners (NPs) and Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists (CRNAs) care for children in various settings from the clinics to the intensive care units, in the emergency department and other specialized areas.

Advanced Practice Nurses with a patient

Advanced practice nurses provide high-quality health care services similar to those of a physician. We diagnose and treat a wide range of health problems and focus on health promotion, disease prevention, health education and counseling. Our advanced education allows us to specialize in many different areas in pediatrics, and some of us hold dual board certification. We help patients and families make wise health and lifestyle choices. APNs are truly your Partners in Health making sure the needs of each individual and family are met.

Some of the areas in the hospital where your child may be cared for by an APN include:

  • Labor and Delivery and Newborn Nursery
  • Neonatal Intensive Care
  • Pediatric Intensive Care
  • Pediatric Cardiac Intensive Care
  • Cardiology
  • Surgical floors
