Who are pediatric-focused advanced practice registered nurses (APRNs)?

Pediatric-focused APRNs is a broad term that includes pediatric nurse practitioners (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 healthcare 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 more than 40 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.
