How are the specific health needs of a child different to an adult? How can a child’s symptoms be understood through their behaviour and reactions? How can the whole family be supported through times of great change and stress? These are the questions you’ll be finding the answers to as a children’s nurse. Nursing infants, children and young people is challenging and rewarding. If you’re compassionate, sensitive and have quick, sound judgement then you’ll thrive in a career where you can truly make a difference to children’s lives.
