Abstract: Drug administration is a fundamental, sensitive, and critical aspect of nursing care that requires skillful technique and regard for the developmental level and safety of the patient. The lack of sufficient attention to the correct principles of drug administration can lead to ethical and professional problems. The goal of this study is to explain some of the strategies that Iranian pediatric nurses use during drug administration. The qualitative approach and content analysis method were used. Fifteen pediatric nurses involved in medication administration were selected for participation using purposive sampling. Data was collected through semi-structured interviews. Using continuous analysis, data collection and comparison were performed at the same time. Data analysis extracted the theme of professional responsibility as the main strategy of pediatric nurses during drug administration; this included the main categories of loyalty and conscientiousness. The main category of loyalty was divided into eight subcategories: principled drug administration, double-checking for high alert drugs, reminders to physicians, seeking drug information, supervision of novice nurses, follow-up and resolving of drug shortages, removing difficulties in pediatric drug administration, application of professional experience. The main category of conscientiousness was divided into the subcategories of practical commitment and inner satisfaction. Strategies of pediatric nurses during drug administration reflect the ethical concept of professional responsibility. It is suggested that this value be encouraged in nurses to improve ethical care during drug administration.
