Abstract

Children receiving care in primarily adult areas, such as emergency or procedural departments, may receive care from nonpediatric nurses. A pediatric resource nurse program offered didactic and hands-on education in pediatric assessment and care. Participants significantly improved self-reported knowledge, skill, and comfort level. Course development and initial learner results are described.
