What is a Pediatric Nurse Practitioner?

Pediatric Nurse Practitioners (PNPs) are health care providers who are dedicated to improving the health of children. PNPs have advanced education in pediatric nursing and health care to independently serve children and families in an extensive range of practice settings. Working with pediatricians and other health care providers, PNPs have been enhancing the health care of children for over forty years.

The PNPs at Mali and Mali Pediatrics provide routine well child care, sick care, and manage common pediatric conditions. In addition to obtaining a master's level education in pediatric health, they have each undergone an intensive clinical pediatric experience where they received highly supervised on-the-job training. After training PNPs continue to work as a team by following "best-practice" treatment protocols and collaborating on more involved or difficult cases. PNPs excel at providing individualized, quality pediatric care in this type of team environment.
