Endocrine Disorders – Pediatric Nursing

by Amy Howells, PhD, CPNP-AC/PC

Disorders involving the endocrine system, which is responsible for hormone regulation and distribution, often originate in childhood. This course offers an in-depth look at a common childhood endocrine disorder, diabetes.

Understanding anatomy and physiology as it relates to the endocrine system is essential to understanding the complexity of pediatric endocrine disorders.

Regardless of where a nurse works, they will no doubt encounter clients with endocrine disorders, especially diabetes, in their practice. As endocrine disorders often last into adulthood, understanding the nuances of pediatric endocrine disorders and the effects they have on growth and development is essential to providing comprehensive care.
