The Graduate Diploma in Paediatric Nursing specialisation prepares general nurses with advanced knowledge and skills in the specialised field of paediatric nursing. This program will allow nurses to practice safely and competently in a variety of paediatric nursing settings. Paediatric nurses provide nursing care needs to infants, children and adolescents who progress rapidly through stages of physical, mental and social development.
The goal of this program is to provide paediatric nursing knowledge that prepares nurses to provide quality and safe nursing interventions. The program emphasises scholarship and critical thinking skills needed to practice in the paediatric nursing arena. Paediatric nursing presents unique challenges and issues. Paediatric nurses must respond and integrate new technologies and treatments into their practice to provide safe, effective, and high-quality nursing care. Paediatric nurses apply evidence-based nursing knowledge into their paediatric nursing practice.
