Paediatric nursing is the medical care of neonates and children up to adolescence, usually in an in-patient hospital or day-clinic.
The main role of paediatric nurses is to administer directly procedures and medicines to children according to prescribed nursing care plans. Nurses also continually assess the patient by observing vital signs, and developing communication skills with children and family members and with medical teams. Being a support to children and their families is one component of direct nursing care. Awareness of the concerns of children and parents, being present physically at times of stress and implementing strategies to help children and family members cope are all part of the work.

Nursing theory is defined as a set of definitions, concepts, relationships and assumptions or propositions derived from nursing models or from other disciplines and project a purposive systematic in view of phenomena by designing specific inter relationships among concepts for the purposes of describing, explaining , predicting or prescribing. They are derived through two principal methods i.e., deductive and inductive reasoning

Midwifery is the health science and health profession that deals with pregnancy, childbirth, and the postpartum period (including care of the new-born), besides sexual and reproductive health of women throughout their lives. In many countries, midwifery is a medical profession (special for its independent and direct specialized education; should not be confused with the medical specialty, which depends on a previous general training). A professional in midwifery is known as a midwife.
The review found that midwifery-led care was associated with a reduction in the use of epidurals, with fewer episiotomies or instrumental births, and a decreased risk of losing the baby before 24 weeks' gestation. However, midwifery-led care was also associated with a longer mean length of labour as measured in hours.
Midwives are qualified to assist with a normal vaginal delivery while more complicated deliveries are handled by a health care provider who has had further training.
Midwifery-led care has effects including the following:
- A reduction in the use of epidurals, with fewer episiotomies or instrumental births.
- a longer mean length of labour as measured in hours
- increased chances of being cared for in labour by a midwife known by the childbearing woman
- increased chances of having a spontaneous vaginal birth
- decreased risk of preterm birth
- decreased risk of losing the baby before 24 weeks' gestation, although there appears to be no differences in the risk of losing the baby after 24 weeks or overall
Nursing models are usually described as a representation of reality or in a more simpler way of organising a complex phenomenon. Nursing model is a combination of both concepts and the assumption that combine them to form a meaningful arrangement. A model is a systematic way of presenting a situation in such a way that it shows the logical terms in order to showcase the structure of the original idea. Components of nursing modelling includes

Qualitative research refers to any research based on something which is impossible to accurately or precisely measure. But it allows the researchers to explore human experiences in personal contexts and also social contexts, and gain greater understanding of the factors influencing these experiences. Research of this type can help nurses to understand health and illness experiences and offer compassionate, person-centred care. Methods includes
- Track 14-1Grounded Theory
- Track 14-2Phenomenology
- Track 14-3Ethnography
Quantitative research can also be called as an empirical research. It refers to any research that can be accurately and precisely measured by an instrument. Instruments are used in quantitative research help to convert information into numbers. Instrument studies only quantifiable concepts.

A Certified Nurse Midwife (CNM) provides many of the same services as a gynecologist and midwife provide. They help women with contraceptive control and gynecologic care and also with family planning. She assists in all stages of the pregnancy cycle. This includes initial consultations as well as prenatal visits and exams and postpartum care for the mother and care of the newborn. She also spends a lot of her time in assisting births, and may either work outside the hospital in women’s homes, or inside the hospital with her own practice, where she is able to make many of the critical care decisions.

Gynaecology or gynecology is the medical practice dealing with the health of the female reproductive systems (vagina, uterus, and ovaries) and the breasts. Outside medicine, the term means "the science of women". Its counterpart is andrology, which deals with medical issues specific to the male reproductive system.
Almost all modern gynaecologists are also obstetricians (see obstetrics and gynaecology). In many areas, the specialities of gynaecology and obstetrics overlap.
Examples of conditions dealt with by a gynaecologist are:
- Cancer and pre-cancerous diseases of the reproductive organs including ovaries, fallopian tubes, uterus, cervix, vagina, and vulva
- Incontinence of urine
- Amenorrhoea (absent menstrual periods)
- Dysmenorrhoea (painful menstrual periods)
- Menorrhagia (heavy menstrual periods); a common indication for hysterectomy
- Prolapse of pelvic organs
- Infections of the vagina (vaginitis), cervix and uterus (including fungal, bacterial, viral, and protozoal)
- UTI and Pelvic Inflammatory Disease
- Premenstrual Syndrome
- Other vaginal diseases
Clinical Nurse Specialists are registered nurses, who have graduate level nursing preparation at the master’s or doctoral level as a CNS. Like other types of nursing they also do provide primary patient care to those under their scope. They provide expert advice related to specific conditions or treatment pathways.

Telemedicine is the use of advanced telecommunication and information technologies in order to provide clinical health care at a distance. It helps eliminate distance barriers and can improve access to medical services that would often not be consistently available in distant rural communities. It is also used to save lives in critical care and emergency situations. Although there were distant precursors to telemedicine, it is essentially a product of 20th century telecommunication and information technologies for the development of Nursing Practice.

Public health is "the science and art of preventing disease, prolonging life and promoting human health through organized efforts and informed choices of society, organizations, public and private, communities and individuals." Analysing the health of a population and the threats is the basis for public health. The "public" in question can be as small as a handful of people, an entire village or it can be as large as several continents, in the case of a pandemic. "Health" takes into account physical, mental and social well-being. It is not merely the absence of disease or infirmity, according to the World Health Organization. Public health is interdisciplinary. For example, epidemiology, biostatistics and health services are all relevant. Environmental health, community health, behavioural health, health economics, public policy, mental health and occupational safety are other important subfields.
Public health aims to improve the quality of life through prevention and treatment of disease, including mental health. This is done through surveillance of cases and health indicators, and through promotion of healthy behaviours. Common public health initiatives include promoting hand washing and breastfeeding, delivery of vaccinations, suicide prevention and distribution of condoms to control the spread of sexually transmitted diseases.
Universal health care, (also referred to as universal health coverage, universal coverage, and universal care or socialized health care) usually refers to a health care system that provides health care and financial protection to all citizens of a particular country. It is organized around providing a specified package of benefits to all members of a society with the end goal of providing financial risk protection, improved access to health services, and improved health outcomes. Universal health care is not one-size-fits-all and does not imply coverage for all people for everything. Universal health care can be determined by three critical dimensions: who is covered, what services are covered, and how much of the cost is covered. It is described by the World Health Organization as a situation where citizens can access health services without incurring financial hardship. The Director General of WHO describes universal health coverage as the “single most powerful concept that public health has to offer” since it unifies “services and delivers them in a comprehensive and integrated way”. United Nations member states have agreed to work toward worldwide universal health coverage by 2030. One of the goals with universal healthcare is to create a system of protection which provides equality of opportunity for people to enjoy an attainable level of health.
