Certified Pediatric Nurse Practitioners (CPNPs)
Our nurse practitioners are registered nurses who have completed advanced training and education in primary pediatric care. They are uniquely skilled members of our healthcare team and provide the highest quality of care. At Pediatrics at Newton Wellesley, our nurse practitioners work in collaboration with our physicians to provide many health care services. They are licensed to perform well-child examinations, assess and manage acute and chronic illnesses, write medication prescriptions and teach families about normal growth and development. As part of a comprehensive team, our NPs provide further expertise in the management of specific conditions including ADHD, asthma, gynecology and dermatology.
