Children and Youth with Special Health Care Needs SIG - NAPNAP

Children and Youth with Special Health Care Needs SIG

Founded in 2010, the National Association of Pediatric Nurse Practitioners’ Children and Youth with Special Health Care Needs Special Interest Group (CYSHCN SIG) was established for nurse practitioners to provide leadership and support in comprehensive, effective pediatric health care delivery models of care. The CYSHCN SIG promotes a comprehensive approach to child health that acknowledges the importance of coordinating a child/youths’ physical, mental, social emotional, dental, vision, developmental, educational and community health needs.
