Pediatric nurses provide health and medical care for children from birth through their late teens. These nurses provide expert care to the child while working with the family to address their concerns, fears, problems, and options. Exactly what a pediatric nurse does depends on the work setting, which might be a hospital, surgical center, doctor’s office, clinic, or other health care setting. However, the ten most important tasks included in a general pediatric nurse’s job description, as identified in a study conducted by the National Certification Board of Pediatric Nurse Practitioners and Nurses (NCBPNP/N), (predecessor to the Pediatric Nurse Certification Board (PNCB)) include the following: Identify changes in a child’s signs and symptoms and intervene in emergent situations Maintain privacy and confidentiality in nurse/child relationships Differentiate between normal and abnormal physical findings Serve as a child advocate Participate in activities to manage a child’s pain Analyze situations to anticipate pathophysiological problems and detect changes in status Administer medication using age-appropriate guidelines Determine a child’s needs related to pain management Evaluate a child for signs and symptoms of abuse Provide supportive care to dying children Other frequent activities include involving the child and family in the plan of care, determining the child’s needs based on analysis of symptoms, and determining a child’s needs related to growth and development.
