Nurses are at the center of pediatric readiness.
Pediatric readiness is defined as being prepared to provide the unique care acutely ill and injured children require in emergency settings. Pediatric readiness guidelines for emergency departments specifically recommend having a nurse in the role of pediatric champion, also known as a pediatric emergency care coordinator (PECC).
