BC Children’s Hospital

Nurse Practitioners provide professional guidance to other health professionals in the care of pediatric cardiac patients and families, and participate autonomously as members as the interdisciplinary health teams making referrals to specialist physicians as appropriate.
Nurse Practitioners collaborate with clients and other health professionals to identify and assess trends and patterns that have implications for clients, families and communities; develop and implement population and evidence based strategies to improve health and participate in policy-making activities that influence health services and practices.
