Mission statement

The mission of this section is to promote the discipline of children’s nursing in all settings and the mutual support of all nurses caring for children and young people; to highlight and foster an awareness of the unique needs of children throughout the nursing profession and be the child’s advocate and champion; and to promote a commitment to family-centered care and aspire to a holistic, integrated, and seamless delivery of healthcare with the child at the centre. 

Our commitment to progressing matters of importance for children’s nurses ensures the provision of the best quality care for children. The section will assist the organisation in promoting and protecting the welfare of the members in all matters related to employment, pay, and working conditions.
