However, in work of a nurse it is not only professionalism that is important, but also keenness, attention to the patient, kindness. The main thing is to nurse the patient, to fix him up, to restore to health.
As nurses state, it is more difficult to work with children: it is necessary to dispose a child in such a way that he did not feel fear of pain. And sometimes nurses replace mothers for newborns and in this case not only professional, but also human qualities come to help. They say, successful treatment half depends on nurse's work. It is not only a care of patients and help to the doctor, but also a work which demands a professional knowledge.
Pediatric nurses must be enduring. They have to be indulgent, yet able to correspond successfully and truthfully with children and their family about their sickness and cure. And each children's nurse must have the self-assurance to take a patient's trouble into herhis hands. It is a nurse who should explain to young parents the rules of child's care.
A nurse is to set up and implement a plan of patient treatment. She/he is working with experts from all Children's health care specialties.
