Private Duty Nursing

Private duty nursing (PDN) allows nurses to work alongside therapists, ensuring their patients have access to a team of dedicated medical professionals for both short- and long-term care. Our registered nurses, licensed practical nurses, and aides provide customized in-home (or at-school) clinical services for the comfort and safety of the patient.

Nursing services are available when you need them — on an hourly, daily, or per-visit basis.

We understand the daily challenges of caring for a medically fragile child. With this in mind, our nurses work closely with each household to create an environment that not only nourishes the physical and mental development of the child, but also provides much-needed support for the family as well.
