need help with skills

  1. Hi everybody

    I am a nursing student in my last year.I am currently in Sweden as an exchange student! I need help to find out what specific nursing skills do you need to approach a child in paediatric nursing, Sounds weird I know But this is the assignment that I have been assigned and I cannot seem to find any information on specific skills only on general skills such as patience,etc.

    I hope you guys can help me
    Thanks a million

    I guess the first thing I would do is find out how old a patient. Next review the normals as far as vitals lab work and such the rest will fall into place. You can always try a web search for the particular illness the child has ect. Good Luck.
