Noelle Cerdan, CPNP is a board certified pediatric nurse practitioner.

A pediatric nurse practitioner, however, has had more extensive and specialized pediatric training. Whereas a PA or a NP trains to take care of both pediatric patients and adult patients, a PNP trains solely in the care of pediatric patients. PNP Cerdan joined Oshiro Pediatrics in May 2009.
