Description

The role of a paediatric nurse can be described as that of carer, coordinator, educator and emotional support and resource person. The Enrolled Nurse (EN) who is involved in paediatric care, together with other members of the paediatric team, needs to adopt a holistic attitude towards caring for the child and parent(s) as a family unit. It is important for ENs to recognise that children are not small adults and that their reactions are generally different from adults’ reactions to illness, treatment, separation from family and admission to hospital.
