A pediatric should have be a registered person, who successfully completed a recognized course of study and practice experience in the nursing care of infants, children and adolescents. They assess, plan and provide nursing care and needs for children who are suffering from a wide variety of conditions including diseases, illnesses and who are recovering from surgery, taking into account their medical, social, cultural and family circumstances. Being able to communicate appropriately with children, parents/guardians are their key role apart from working in conjunction with other healthcare professionals
Pediatric nursing understands that children are not small adults, that their needs are unique and important, and that there is no more important work in our species than safeguarding our future generations. From primary care to critical care, nurses are the backbone of pediatric care.
Pediatric Nurses work with patients from infancy to young adulthood, giving developmental screenings, immunizations, and treating common illnesses like chicken pox and tonsillitis. They work closely with family doctors, pediatricians and other nurses, to provide preventative as well as critical care. They also teach patients’ parents and family members how to prevent childhood diseases, and about proper nutrition for growth and development.
