Pediatric Nurse Practitioners, also known as APN’s, are master’s level medical providers trained on the nursing model of care. Similar to Physician’s Assistants, Nurse Practitioners are considered mid-level providers and are trained to assess, diagnose, treat, and prescribe — identical to the Pediatrician role in the outpatient setting. A Pediatric Nurse Practitioner is an APN specialized entirely in the care of children.
