Pediatric nursing is a specialized field that focuses on caring for infants, children, and adolescents. This type of nursing requires a unique set of skills and knowledge, as the care of pediatric patients differs from that of adult patients. 

Pediatric Nursing

Pediatric nursing involves caring for patients from birth to adolescence, and sometimes into early adulthood. This type of nursing requires specialized knowledge and skills, as children are not just “small adults.” Children have unique physical, emotional, and developmental needs, and nurses must be able to provide care tailored to those needs.

Pediatric nurses work in a variety of settings, including hospitals, clinics, schools, and private practices. They may provide care to children with acute illnesses or chronic conditions or work in neonatal intensive care units (NICU) or pediatric intensive care units (PICU).

As a nursing student, you are learning a wide range of skills and knowledge to prepare for your future nursing career. When it comes to pediatric nursing, it’s important to have a solid understanding of pediatric-specific diseases and conditions and the unique aspects of caring for pediatric patients.

I cannot express enough gratitude for Nurse Mike and this wonderful platform he has created. I had a subscription to SimpleNursing the entire 2 years of my nursing school career and it was the best resource I had available to me. The visuals, the explanations, the memory tricks, the songs, the study guides, and the test questions are brilliant.

Before starting nursing school, I was a C-average student. I didn't think I'd be competent enough and make it through my second semester. I was told about SimpleNursing and purchased it immediately. Long story short, I graduated nursing school with honors and passed all of my classes with As and Bs only. I would have never been able to do that without the help of SimpleNursing. Nurse Mike teaches in the only way that I am able to learn and I cannot thank him enough.
