Pediatric ICU Travel Nurses

Pediatric ICU travel nurses are in high demand. Being a pediatric ICU nurse involves a different skillset and education focus. Their patients are little humans at varying stages of life, all still growing. Diagnoses, treatments, and technology and equipment are all different for pediatric patients than adults. Additionally, the rapport a pediatric ICU travel RN must develop with their patients may require different communication styles and discretion.

Our advancements in medicine over the years have a direct link to the rise in demand for pediatric ICU nurses to rise. Babies and children are surviving traumatic events and chronic illnesses that were previously not survivable. This is wonderful for children and their families who receive serious diagnoses. It also means the demand for pediatric ICU nurses will to continue to be high. In part because while the survival rate has increased, recovery, rehabilitation, and treatments when the disease is chronic require vigilant and at times complex care. Pediatric ICU nurses have specialized to care for children who have complex, chronic illnesses such as but not limited to:

  • single or multiple organ failure
  • trauma
  • sepsis
  • neurological deterioration

They also care for children who are in recovery following:

  • organ transplant
  • neurological surgery
  • orthopedic surgery
  • cardiac surgery

It is not enough to simply love working with children (although that trait is helpful). The dedication to detail, the continued learning about the complex medical issues and their treatments require commitment and determination. A pediatric ICU travel nurse will not only develop rapport with their patients, but their families as well. They are expected to offer support, guidance, and resource referrals when appropriate to the families of their critically ill patients.

You will need to be able to monitor, assess, and prioritize the care required for your pediatric patients. Your rapport with the families will assist you in serving as a liaison between the physician and family.
