I've been an RN for three years, two in adult medical/cardiac ICU. I got my CCRN in adult critical care last fall. I've been accepted to CRNA school (YAY!) and am thinking I'd love to be a camp nurse this summer, as a final staff job and a less stressful job than ICU nursing. I loved camp as a kid and wanted to be a camp nurse since nursing school
I'm not, obviously, a peds nurse. I have CPR and PALS, and I'd certainly brush up on the kiddo stuff. I feel confident that I know the big things, just by being a nurse and being interested in all aspects of nursing, but am I overconfident? I feel like if I'm going to be a CRNA I can certainly be a camp nurse, but they are totally different fields. What do the experienced camp nurses think? Does ICU expertise cancel out pediatric inexperience?
