Department of Pediatric Nursing
Pediatric nursing is the medical care of neonates and children up to adolescence, usually in an in-patient hospital or day-clinic. The main role of pediatric nurses is to administer directly procedures and medicines to children according to prescribed nursing care plans. Nurses also continually assess the patient by observing vital signs, and developing communication skills with children and family members and with medical teams. Being a support to children and their families is one component of direct nursing care. Awareness of the concerns of children and parents, being present physically at times of stress and implementing strategies to help children and family members cope are all part of the work.
This Department intends to build a strong basis in the science of child care at Bachelor’s level. This program demonstrates strong clinical experience at pediatric hospitals or clinics. Each academic staff member attempts to fulfill the goals of the university and the country’s health map with an effective presence in clinical fields and consistent with educational and research programs.
