The Society of Pediatric Nurses (SPN) is committed to addressing the long-term biopsychosocial needs of adolescents and emerging adults. This includes adolescents with disabilities and/or special health care needs (ASHCN) as they prepare to leave the pediatric and child-centered systems of care and enter the- adult-focused systems of care. During this transition from pediatric to adult care, pediatric nurses can help these emerging adults as they proceed with their own development to the extent possible in achieving the competencies associated with adulthood.
