Nicole Langan Maciejak, MSN, APRN, CPNP-PC
Research Interests/Clinical Practice
Nicole’s clinical interests include improving access to primary care in childhood and the associated effects on long term health. She is particularly interested in research on the impact of food insecurity on pediatric physical and mental health as well as the role of universal food insecurity screening in improving patient outcomes throughout the lifespan.
Additionally, as primary care is a critical point of access into the mental health care system, Nicole has focused clinically on the care of children with mental health care needs. She is interested in the role of pediatric nurse practitioners as patient advocates, helping to optimize outcomes by using a family-centered team approach between the child’s primary care clinician, specialists, and educators.
