Everything About Peds Nursing

Pediatrics Nurses are in high demand across the country.

A career in peds travel nursing is a great way for you to avoid nurse burnout — the job is still very demanding, but the variety of locations and facilities can help keep you fresh and motivated. It’s also a great way to sharpen your skills, gain crucial experience, and improve your resume.

To be successful working in peds you must be great with children and families, great at multitasking, work well within a team, be extremely detail-oriented, and have excellent communication and problem-solving skills.

Pediatrics nurses provide acute and preventative care to children and must have highly specialized knowledge and skill sets to address the many concerns and conditions that are specific to growing bodies. Since children’s bodies are always changing and developing, they can have very specific healthcare needs and cannot simply be treated as miniature adults. Peds nurses must have a special finesse when it comes to communicating with their patients, as children may not always be able to clearly and accurately explain their experiences and needs. Parental education on care is another unique aspect of working as a peds nurse, especially if a child has a chronic condition.

Peds nurses and other peds professionals work in a variety of healthcare settings including hospitals, clinics, schools, and within community organizations. A trademark for peds nurses is serving and interacting with parents/families almost as much as the patient.

The peds team’s ultimate goal is to assess, comfort, and care for infants, toddlers, children, tweens, and teens.

Who Works in Peds?

A wide range of healthcare professionals work in the pediatrics unit in order to serve the needs of pediatric patients and their families. Pediatric team members can include peds RNs, respiratory therapists, nursing assistants, pediatricians, pediatric hospitalists, pediatric nurse practitioners, child psychologists, physical therapists, administrative staff, and social workers/case managers.     

Who’s Treated in Peds?

Children of all ages can be treated in the pediatrics unit, from infancy through their late teen years. Peds patients may be seen for routine and preventative care, developmental screening, testing, minor illnesses or injuries, serious diseases or injuries, or chronic conditions and disabilities.
