This paper presents a bibliometric analysis of Indian literature in the field of Pediatric Nursing as indexed in the MEDLINE, which covered in the Pubmed for the period 2013-2017. It is observed that a total of 106 records were covered by the Indian Journals. It is found that there is a gradual growth of literature in the subject but in an inconsistent manner. 86.79% all the cited records were journal articles. Out of the total 106 records, all the records were in English language form 100% of the total. Fluctuation trends were found both in the RGR and Dt. The results of the Activity Index indicate that Indian efforts in Pediatric Nursing research were greater in two years out of five years of the study period. The most frequently cited journal article records were Nursing subject and followed by the Medicine, Public Health, Dentistry, Pediatrics etc. Twenty-six Indian Journals were identified in the field of Pediatric Nursing covered in the study period.
