Pediatric nurse practitioners (PNPs) are registered nurses with extra clinical training leading to an advanced practice nursing certification. PNPs diagnose and treat the full breadth of pediatric conditions, and are able to perform complete physical examinations as well. We are excited that we will be able to enhance our level of service to you, especially as our practice has become busier.
Carissa is a warm, friendly and competent clinician. We feel certain that you will find her pleasant nature and pediatric experience an asset to our practice. We hope that with us, you will welcome her warmly into Patriot Pediatrics.
