Paediatric Nursing Skills for Australian Nurses is the first Australia-focused, dedicated paediatric skills text for undergraduate students.

Integrating the theoretical and clinical components of nursing knowledge, the authors outline the clinical skills needed in the care of children and young people. The journey begins with an introduction to communication - an essential skill for any paediatric nurse - before exploring crucial topics such as mental health, nutrition and medication. These discussions are presented in connection with the latest national competency standards for registered nurses to help equip readers with these necessary abilities. Pedagogical features include case studies, clinical tips and reflection questions to encourage active thinking and analysis of key concepts. Each chapter concludes with a set of review questions, a research topic and a list of recommended readings to consolidate student understanding. Paediatric Nursing Skills for Australian Nurses is an essential resource for pre-registered nurses within the Australian paediatric setting.

Key Features:

  • This locally written text integrates theoretical and clinical components of nursing to support the provision of paediatric care in Australia
  • Supports readers' learning through a wealth of learning materials including case studies, visual materials, review questions and recommended readings
