Kenneth J. Haluska, DNP, FNP-C

Pediatric Nurse Practitioner

Specialty: Pediatrics

Kenneth always wanted to be a nurse practitioner because of the unique opportunity to develop patient rapport and assist the patient with developing healthy lifestyle habits. He worked in medical-surgical nursing for two years and taught undergraduate nurses. Pediatrics was my favorite clinical class in graduate school.

Kenneth first encountered pediatric nursing when shadowing his mother, a pediatric registered nurse, back 2014, and it quickly became his favorite clinical class in graduate school. He is extremely excited to work with the pediatric population as a provider, to have the opportunity to create healthy habits early, and watch as his patients and their families grow and develop.

Kenneth is married and he and his spouse are expecting their first child in June 2023. He is a fan of the Dallas Cowboys and Chicago White Sox, and continues to play soccer and softball in the summer with friends. He has four cats: Marnie, Francine, Dalia, and Queen.
