The Department of Child Health Nursing is concerned with the health of infants, children and adolescents, their growth and development and the attainment of full potential as an adult. It aims to impart quality education in the field of child care at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels and to contribute to quality care for all children. Through the Child Health Nursing course, it intends to prepare the students in the acquisition of advanced and in-depth knowledge, efficient client care skills and the right attitude in the day to day clinical practice of caring for children. The department prepares the students to plan and initiate innovative changes in the care of sick children.
The department conducts seminars, to further enrich the knowledge and practice of the staff and students. Innovative teaching methods like panel discussions, group discussions, role plays, quiz, exhibitions and procedure demonstrations are used to make teaching-learning more active-in the class room, clinical field and community. With a view to reach out its services to the community, the department celebrates occasions like Newborn Week and Children’s Day by organizing community centered activities for the benefit of students.
Students conduct researches, both at undergraduate and postgraduate level, which makes learning and practice more evidence based.
