Message from HOD

Paediatric Nursing HOD

Paediatric nursing truly represents the most challenging and exciting area in nursing care. Taking care of children in their sickness is an art. The 21st century demands us to inculcate the true aspect of nursing as an art and science. Child health nursing provides the opportunity to understand the core of art and science of nursing from the infancy to adolescence. Child health nursing forms a natural bridge to other specialties such as psychology, sociology, psychiatry and maternity. Within the department, students experience the depth of child-health nursing in the clinics, classroom, laboratory, and in the field. We have vibrant and dedicated faculty, committed to excellence in education, and are proud of the outstanding students and dedicated staff who make this possible. Students are actively engaged in projects under the guidance of expert faculties in the department. It is an exciting time to be a child health nurse educator especially in Jubilee Mission College of Nursing.
