Effective care delivery in the pediatric tertiary care setting has become increasingly problematic over recent years due to changes in available providers. This is related to a shift in the focus of post-graduate medical education from tertiary to primary care and expanded duty hour restrictions for physicians in training which limits their availability to provide tertiary pediatric care. Furthermore, the sub-specialization of pediatric intensive care units has increased the need for critical care providers. The problem has been further compounded by inadequate numbers of trained acute care pediatric nurse practitioners (ACPNP) since until recently there were only a few programs available to train ACPNP providers in the United States. In an effort to address these issues, Marquette University College of Nursing partnered with the Medical College of Wisconsin and Children?s Hospital of Wisconsin in 2009 to bring local pediatric nurses interested in pursuing advanced practice training, the opportunity to do so locally. These collaborative efforts have assisted in preparing ACPNP students develop roles in multiple acute care pediatric specialty areas such as in gastroenterology and critical care and to function as highly qualified providers in these areas. The Pediatric Critical Care Division at the Medical College of Wisconsin developed a unique Attending Physician/ ACPNP staffing model to deliver direct care to critically ill children that serves as an example for other programs regionally and nationally. Furthermore, these models of care delivery and ACPNP training, education, and preparation could be replicated by other organizations nationally and internationally, when faced with similar issues.
