History and Reputation

1st Choice Pediatric Home Care has been providing nursing services to complex pediatric patients for over 20 years. We have partnered with health care professionals, insurance companies, social workers, and others professionals in the pediatric health care community, and have proven to be a trusted leader in the pediatric home care nursing industry!

Our founder is Terri Lynas, whose son had 24/7 nursing at home. Our mission is to provide the same quality care Terri wanted for her son to other families in their homes.

Above and Beyond for Patients

We are known for making the families we work with feel completely supported. We are happy to assist families with all aspects of their child’s care, not just nursing services. We coordinate with other providers in order to make sure all needs are being met. We want families to know, even when things are overwhelming, we are here to help. They are not alone in this journey!

Extensive Training for Nurses

1st Choice Pediatric provides in-depth training for all of our nurses before they begin working with a patient. By first determining the experience, skill level, and training required for each nurse, we are then able to set up individual training programs specific to each individual patient’s needs.

Nurses attend classroom-based courses on specific equipment and cares pertaining to patients. We also schedule on-the-job training for all new nurses to shadow an experienced nurse caring for the patient. We use training and testing materials from the Minnesota Pediatric Home Care Council to ensure nurses are properly and adequately trained before ever working independently with a patient.
