Children are central to sustainable development. It is well known that millions of children under five years of age in our country still do not receive appropriate care and support to become physically healthy, mentally alert and emotionally secure. Progress has been made in reducing child mortality and in improving child’s health with the help of nurses. Current evidence from Sample Registration System, 2018 Report indicates that; the Under Five Mortality Rate in India is 36/1000 live births and Infant Mortality Rate is 32/1000 live births. Further reduction in child mortality is still desired, along with a need to improve the survival outcome. To attain this, involvment of nurses is vital to implement all the existing child health services, be that preventive, promotive, curative or rehabilitative. Nurses are to play a major role in improving the child health status of the country and in achieving National Health Goals.
