Nurse Practitioners

The pediatric nurse practitioners have been essential members of the pediatric critical care team for over 15 years. The nurse practitioners provide comprehensive care to children in the combined 24 bed pediatric intensive care and intermediate care units. The nurse practitioners, in collaboration with the pediatric intensivists and the PICU/PIMC teams, holistically manage critically ill infants, children, and adolescents with a wide array of acute and life-threatening medical and surgical conditions requiring specialized technology as well as chronically ill, technology dependent children. In this advanced practice role, the nurse practitioners are also leaders in nursing education, quality improvement, and research and are dedicated to providing quality and innovative care to achieve optimal patient outcomes.
