Pediatric nurses play an important role in caring for children with short stature. With their special knowledge of nursing assessment and interventions, pediatric nurses are coordinators, resource people, and patient educators. They provide services that are inherently part of the nurse's role, such as promoting better understanding of children's age-specific psychosocial needs and screening for underlying medical problems.
