FEN (Fluids, Electrolytes, Nutrition) – Pediatric Nursing

by Amy Howells, PhD, CPNP-AC/PC

Alterations in fluid, electrolytes, and nutrition in infants and children have the potential to profoundly impact health and well-being. This course offers an in-depth look at hydration and nutrition status in pediatric populations.

As this course covers the complexities of fluid and nutrition status as it relates to pediatric clients, a basic understanding of fluid, electrolytes, and nutrition would be beneficial to fully appreciate the presentation and treatment differences between pediatric and adult populations.

Although not every nurse will care for pediatric clients, an understanding of fluid and nutrition status and the profound effects alterations in status can have on growth, development, and overall health is beneficial for all nurses.
