The Journal of Pediatric Health Care, the official journal of the National Association of Pediatric Nurse Practitioners, provides up-to-date clinical information and research findings regarding primary, acute and specialty health care for children of newborn age through young adulthood within a family-centered context.




The National Association of Pediatric Nurse Practitioners (NAPNAP) is the nation’s only professional association for pediatric-focused advanced practice registered nurses (APRNs) dedicated to improving the quality of health care for infants, children, adolescents and young adults. Representing more than 8,000 healthcare practitioners with 18 special interest groups and 53 chapters, NAPNAP has been advocating for children’s health since 1973 and was the first APRN society in the U.S. Our mission is to empower pediatric-focused advanced practice registered nurses and key partners to optimize child and family health. We pride ourselves in the caliber of our members, who include national child health care experts, respected authors, distinguished faculty and practicing professionals representing many facets of pediatric health care delivery.
