This report arises in the sphere of the Curricular Unit Final Internship and Report, of the Master’s Degree of Nursing in Infantile and Pediatric Health, from the Institute of Health Sciences of the Portuguese Catholic University – Oporto. Its main focus is to demonstrate my experience in different care contexts, emphasizing acquired skills in the specialty area. The internship took place in three contexts, Pediatric Emergency Service, Neonatology and Infantile Health with the duration of 750 hours of work, of which 360 hours were in practice context and 390 of individual study. I defined specific objectives for the different contexts of practice bearing in mind the skills proposed in the studies plan and they were achieved through critical-reflexive analysis of various activities, by which, in turn, were organized in unison with the four professional performance domains of a nurse: Care Provider, Care Management, Training and Research. The main attention areas were transition to parenting, care, mother-child bonding and relationship, breastfeeding and pain control in children. This skills and competences of the different domains were demonstrated throughout the internship through care given to new-born, children, adolescents and family, promoting child development and adaptive capacity in health or disease. The recurred methodology is descriptive and critical-reflexive, based upon bibliographical research.
