A pediatric nurse practitioner refers to a registered nurse with advance education and training in the field of pediatrics. They are providing several services not only for sick kids but also for healthy kids. When you say pediatric nurse, you are referring to a registered nurse. They are also expected to know how to deal with kids. They can perform variety of tasks too like setting up IV's, giving  medicine to patients, checking vital signs, etc. The main difference between the pediatric nurse and a pediatric nurse practitioner is their level of expertise and trainings as well as their educational background.
