Pediatric rehabilitation is a specialty that will need more nurses in the future. A clinical rotation in this specialty was incorporated into the pediatric experience of junior-year baccalaureate nursing students at the University of Maryland School of Nursing. The experience helped students to learn more about the nursing care involved in pediatric rehabilitation, to appreciate the different disciplines within the specialty, and to view pediatric nursing from a holistic long-range perspective. The experience also strengthened ties between nursing education and practice.
