A Brisbane nurse has admitted she killed her 10-year-old nephew by failing to take him to the doctor before he died from pneumonia.

Curtis Powell had more than 200 injuries when he was found dead at a house in Brisbane's south-east in July 2015.

His aunt and foster carer, Jodie Maree Powell, pleaded guilty to manslaughter and two charges of assault occasioning bodily harm.

"It included things like banging Curtis's head on the wall, use of power cords, wooden spoons, belts and a metal fork," he said.

Mr Nardone said on one occasion Powell threw a knife at Curtis, causing a cut to his leg that she bandaged before making him stand in a corner.

In another incident, she hit him with a carving fork.

Mr Nardone said Curtis suffered injuries to his legs, arms, neck, stomach and back.

Mr Nardone said Powell failed to seek adequate medical attention for Curtis before he died in July 2015.

She was arrested and charged 18 months later.

Defence barrister Tim Ryan said his client overcame "great adversity" to reach success in her career — which included once being the head of infection control and prevention at Brisbane's Mater Hospital.

"But she never confronted her demons from early childhood," he said.

"She found herself in the position where she wasn't coping."

Mr Ryan said Powell made a serious error of judgement by not taking her nephew to the doctor.

"This kind of death is a relatively rare one ... rarely do children die of pneumonia," he said.

"This is not an outcome that she, at any time, would have wanted."

Justice Martin Burns said Powell was a registered nurse in charge of a very ill child.

"She chose not to seek medical attention because that could have well exposed what was going on ... that excessive discipline and force," he said.

Justice Burns will hand down his sentence on Wednesday.
