Careers in children's nursing
Children's nurses care for sick children and provide support to their families in hospitals and the community. Working in partnership with parents or carers, these nurses fully understand how to minimise the impact of illness or hospital admission on a child. Instead of treating them as miniature adults, they need to understand factors which complicate treatment and the levels of communication children have.
