Pediatrics

Mission of the program

The aim of the program is to prepare the pediatric nurse practitioner for the multifaceted role of nurse practitioner in ambulatory, intermediate, acute and critical care. The pediatric nurse practitioner is prepared to provide and/or collaborate in the provision of services designed to deal with the health care needs and problems of children 0 to 18 years that have acute, complex issues requiring secondary & tertiary care provided in the associated settings. The focus in all specialties is the development of expert clinical competence. The ability to function in a teaching, consultation, liaison, and managerial capacity is essential to the development of clinical expertise. These areas are addressed within the curriculum. In Québec, the pediatric NP role corresponds with the title Infirmière praticienne spécialisée en soins pédiatriques.

Our program
