Pediatric Nursing

A pediatric nurse is a nursing professional that primarily works in the field of pediatrics and provides medical care of neonates and children up to adolescence. They provide care to children and adolescents in all aspects of their growth and wellbeing. Pediatric nurses deliver primary care services such as diagnosis and treatment of most common childhood diseases and developmental screenings. For chronically ill children, acute care and specialty services are also available. Some pediatric nurses and nurse practitioners are specialized in the areas, such as cardiology, dermatology, gastroenterology or oncology.
