Paediatric nursing jobs: frequently asked questions

Welcome to our paediatric nursing jobs page, featuring jobs around the UK for nurses working with children and youths. Here are some handy FAQs for anyone wishing to learn more about what’s available for qualified nurses specialising in paediatrics.

What does a Paediatric Nurse do?

Paediatric nurses assess the new born, infant or child’s healthcare needs (with consideration to their social, cultural and family circumstances), create a care plan and deliver this care in association with the family and the doctor.

They're expected to then evaluate and modify the plan as required. Involvement of parents/guardians and family can be a key element to the success of any nursing intervention.

What kind of settings do Paediatric Nurses work in?

Paediatric nursing jobs can be found in several environments – in the child’s home and the community, in hospitals, specialised units and care homes and during the transfer of children between the different settings.

The work involves working with children from birth to age 16 (or 18 in some cases) with specific challenges, notably when the child is young and unable to communicate effectively.

What skills and qualifications do Paediatric Nurses need?

It is essential that a paediatric nurse can observe and assess effectively to help the child.

To qualify for paediatric nurse jobs you will need to study a recognised pre-registration course in nursing (either a diploma or degree or an accelerated programme should you already hold a degree in a related subject – and from 2013 only degree courses will be available) and choose the children’s branch so that you can register as a RGN – Children’s Nurse with the NMC.

A paediatric nurse requires an in-depth understanding of the needs of children, how they change through the different developmental periods and how you need to adapt your approach to each stage.

What are the key responsibilities required of a Paediatric Nurse?

Duties will vary depending on where you are working and the needs of the child but will include:

• Assessments, observations and reporting

• The preparation of patients and parents/guardians for procedures and operations

– including consent, as legally required, and full explanations

• Reassuring patients and family – advising and educating

• Assisting with procedures, tests and evaluations

• Accurate vital signs recording (temperature, pulse, respiration, etc.)

• Ensuring good nutritional support for the patient

• Setting up, maintaining and checking

• Intra Venous Infusions and blood transfusions

• Administration of drugs – oral, rectal, IM, subcutaneously or IV Liaising and working with other health professionals – doctors, therapists, health visitors, social workers, etc.

• Ensuring strict compliance with Health and Safety and Hygiene rules

• Completing all records accurately and confidentially

Paediatric roles in the NHS and private sectors

Most paediatric nursing roles are found within the NHS Authorities and Trusts in hospitals, clinics and nursing homes.

There are also paediatric nurse jobs available in the Private Sector and non-profit organisations.

You may also find vacancies in GP practices, day care centres, child health clinics, school health education units and private nursing agencies.

As healthcare services move more and more into the community so you can find paediatric nurse jobs in many community organisations with some paediatric nurses specialising in, for example, cystic fibrosis, diabetes, asthma, etc.

Key personal skills a Paediatric Nurse should consider

• Compassionate and empathetic

• Nurturing and reassuring

• An effective communicator

• Dedicated to children and their health

• Able to manage stress and to assist others to manage theirs

• Emotionally resilient

• Flexible

You’ll also need to have excellent clinical skills and sound theoretical knowledge of childhood conditions and illnesses.

Competition for paediatric nurse jobs can be quite high so experience and research prior to an interview is vital to success.
