Big Questions for Child Nursing in 2023

02/11/2022

The year 2023 will be here before we know it! And with the healthcare industry constantly evolving, child nurses need to be prepared for the changes that are taking place. So, what big questions will child nursing face in 2023?  

One way to stay ahead of the curve is to keep up with the latest research in the field. Technology is also playing an increasingly important role in healthcare, so it is essential for child nurses to be comfortable with using computers and other devices. In addition, the ability to effectively communicate with patients and families is more important than ever. By keeping these factors in mind, child nurses can ensure that they are prepared for the future of healthcare. 

Let’s explore a few predictions we can expect to encounter in 2023, and how our Nursing and Midwifery Council-approved BSc (Hons) Nursing (Children) degree at the University of Bolton can help prepare you for a long-lasting career, making your ambitions become a reality. 

Child Nursing

 

How will artificial intelligence impact child nursing?  

Artificial intelligence (AI) is increasingly being used in various aspects of healthcare, from diagnostics to treatment planning. Child nursing is no exception, and AI is beginning to play a role in supporting nurses who care for young patients. For example, AI-powered chatbots can be used to provide information about common childhood illnesses, such as the flu or chickenpox. In addition, AI can be used to help identify patterns in a child's health data that may indicate a developing condition. By using AI to support child nursing, nurses can improve the quality of care they are able to provide. In addition, AI may also help to reduce the amount of time spent on administrative tasks, freeing up nurses to spend more time with their patients. 

What new technologies will emerge to help child nurses care for their patients?  

New technologies are always emerging in the field of nursing, and child nursing is no exception. From new ways to administer medication to more efficient ways to monitor vital signs, there are always new technologies that can help child nurses provide the best possible care. One recent development is the use of robotics in child nursing. By using robots to perform routine tasks such as checking vitals or delivering medication, nurses can free up time to focus on more important tasks. In addition, robots can provide a more consistent level of care, which can be beneficial for children who require around-the-clock monitoring. The use of new technologies in child nursing is helping to improve the quality of care that children receive. 

How will rising healthcare costs impact child nursing care?  

Healthcare costs are rising each year, and this trend is likely to continue. This is good news for child nursing care. As healthcare costs increase, families are more likely to invest in private child nursing care. This increased demand will lead to more job opportunities for child nurses. In addition, as families face higher healthcare bills, they will increasingly value the preventative care that child nurses provide. By catching illnesses early and providing education on how to avoid future health problems, child nurses can help to keep costs down for families. 

What challenges will child nurses face in providing culturally competent care?  

As nurses, we are constantly striving to provide the best possible care for our patients. However, this can be a challenge when working with patients from different cultural backgrounds. Child nurses may face difficulties when it comes to providing culturally competent care. This is because children are often more comfortable communicating with adults who share their culture and language. One way to overcome this challenge is to build strong relationships with interpreters and other cultural resource professionals. By working together, we can ensure that our patients receive the high-quality care they deserve.

How can child nurses best prepare themselves for the future of healthcare?  

The future is always full of unknowns, but that doesn't mean we can't prepare for it! By asking ourselves big questions about the challenges and changes child nursing will face in 2023, we can start to formulate plans and strategies for how to meet those challenges head-on. So, let's get started!
