Prospective Pediatric Home Care Nurses: What to Prepare For, Suffern, New York

Becoming a pediatric home care nurse can be a rewarding decision for many individuals. As with any profession, there are a few considerations to be mindful of before embarking on this specific career path. To help you decide whether this line of work is the best option for you, the team at J & D Ultracare, the premier nurse staffing agency in Suffern, NY, can offer some helpful information.

To become a pediatric home care nurse, you should be prepared to encounter the following work life factors:

  • Interactions With Children: First and foremost, prospective pediatric nurses should enjoy working with children, as their patients can range in age from 0 to 21 years old.
  • Non-Traditional Schedule: Home care nurses provide skilled services in the patient’s home  and/or school environment on an hourly basis. They could be needed for as little as four hours per day or even for round-the-clock care.
  • A Range of Conditions: From premature babies to children with life-threatening illnesses, those who receive care from pediatric home care nurses deal with a broad variety of conditions.
  • Communication With Parents: Learning to speak with parents who are concerned about their children’s well-being is an important pillar of successful pediatric nursing, so it’s helpful if you have strong pre-existing communication skills before pursuing this line of work.
