As key members of our care team at Gillette, Advanced Practice Registered Nurses (APRNs) and Physician Assistants (PAs) offer the level of experience and expertise needed to care for patients who have short- and long-term disabilities. They have the educational background and critical thinking skills to understand our patients and figure out how best to help them. Over the past 10 years, Gillette has seen significant growth in the number of advance practice nurses and physician assistants hospital-wide. Several of our clinics are run by APRNs and PAs and many Gillette APRNs and PAs are also involved in designing, implementing and interpreting research.
APRNs and PAs currently provide services in pediatric rheumatology, pediatric orthopedics, pediatric neurology and neurosurgery, developmental pediatrics, craniofacial services and adult services.
