Paediatric and School Nursing

 The nurse preparing to care for today’s and tomorrow’s children and child-rearing families faces vastly different responsibilities and challenges than did the pediatric nurse of even a decade ago. Nurses and other health professionals are becoming increasingly concerned with much more than the care of at-risk and sick children. Health teaching; preventing illness; and promoting optimal (most desirable or satisfactory) physical, developmental, and emotional health have become a significant part of contemporary nursing. Scientific and technological advances have reduced the incidence of communicable disease and helped to control metabolic disorders such as diabetes. As a result, more health care is provided outside the hospital. Patients now receive health care in the home, at schools and clinics, and from their primary care provider. Prenatal diagnosis of birth defects, transfusions, other treatments for the unborn fetus, and improved life-support systems for premature infants are but a few examples of the rapid progress in child care.
