Collaborative Pediatric Outreach Program

The Washington State University College of Nursing (CON) & Sacred Heart Children’s Hospital (SHCH) Collaborative Pediatric Outreach Program (POP) aims to improve pediatric care in the Northwest by serving as a professional extension of your team. The goal of Collaborative POP is to provide quality continuing education and resources to pediatric clinics and care teams across the Northwest in an accessible and efficient format.
