“Pediatric nurse practitioners promote and impact the health of a child and family in primary and acute care settings by management and treatment of illness and encouraging healthy lifestyles to prevent disease. Supporting and engaging with families at times of joy and at times of stress is incredibly important in pediatric health care. The ability of the nurse practitioner to listen, accept, engage, and intervene at every point of contact allows families to feel supported and empowered and to keep their children healthy.”
