Abstract

ABSTRACT
Objective: Reflect on the emotional labor in pediatric nursing in view of the repercussions of COVID-19 in childhood and adolescence.
Method: Reflection based on theoretical aspects and scientific evidence of emotional labor in pediatric nursing.
Results: Given the repercussions of COVID-19 in children and adolescents, it is important to the nurse to recognize them and nurture non-traumatic and affectionate care. However, there are implications of measures to control the disease in the way of care. In this context, emotional labor becomes essential, as it guides the management of the child's and family's emotions, associated with the suffering caused by the pandemic and the nurse's emotional experience when caring.
Conclusions: Emotional labor is essential in pediatrics, especially in a stressful situation such as the pandemic, which requires the positive transformation of the intense and disturbing experiences of people in interaction to achieve psychosocial well-being.
Keywords: Pediatric nursing. Nursing care. Emotions. Coronavirus infections. Pandemics.
