PodQuiz Pediatric Nursing Part 1: Episode 14

Pediatric nursing

In this PodQuiz we cover three very common pediatric nursing topics!

  • Peds nutrition (how many calories in an ounce of breast milk?)
  • Peds assessment (at what age can you assess a radial pulse?)
  • Peds psychosocial (how do you help a school-age child adapt to hospitalization?)

What’s a PodQuiz? It’s essentially flashcards for your ears! Nurse Mo asks a question, pauses while you answer, then states the answer…it’s a fantastic way to study while you’re on the go, exercising, commuting, folding laundry, making dinner, feeding the baby, getting your nails done….you get the idea.
