Developing Nursing Practice with Children and Young People explores the context of children s nursing in light of recent policy changes, and looks at contemporary issues and emerging roles within the field. Divided into four parts, Part One focuses on the emergence of children s nursing in healthcare, detailing events and developments that have shaped the role of children s nurses. Part Two examines many aspects of practice for registered practitioners in nursing, ranging from acute care settings to children s nurses developing roles in primary care, mental health and with children and young people with special health and social needs. Part Three then provides a detailed analysis of advanced practice in children s nursing. The advanced skills portfolio is presented in depth, augmented by exemplars of a number of advanced practice roles which have already been established. Finally, Part Four builds on the previous three parts by offering several case studies from practice – including accounts from children, young people and families, as well as assistant practitioners and student nurses. The text concludes by focusing on the longer term scope for children s nurses.
