8.2 Children’s nursing
Children’s nurses work with children and young people in hospitals, community, schools and clinics, as well as with children and families in their homes and respite care. They nurse children from birth through to adolescence. You may work with healthy children supporting and promoting health, such as tackling childhood obesity, through to children with very complex needs and/or life-limiting disorders. Children’s nurses will work with the whole family to support the child’s health and wellbeing.
