Core Pediatric Skills

Realistically representing a six-year old child, Nursing Kid is designed for skill and scenario-based training of the care and management of a variety of pediatric patients. This child is ideal for clinical training of common and uncommon in-hospital pediatric patients including wound assessment and care, first aid, and child abuse training.

Educationally Effective Training

Nursing Kid provides training targeting key skills specific to pediatric care providers. Nursing Kid is designed to meet the training requirements  for pediatric patient care and helps facilitate delivery of consistent simulations into nursing curriculums.
