- 0Jul 29, '11 by HopefulRN2010I think it went really well! I just shadowed yesterday, so hopefully I will find something out soon!
@pjp2u2- I LOVED it! I have always wanted to do pediatrics, so I felt like I was finally in the right place! It was different though. My nurse had an 8 month old and a 13 year old. And I must say changing the diaper of the 8 month old was a lot different than the diapers I change where I currently work! The nurse I was shadowing was so friendly and helpful as well. Actually pretty much everyone there was really friendly. Hopefully I will see you soon

Just know your pediatric specific disorders (not anything too crazy), and what is important to kiddos assessment wise. (Eating, peeing, pooping, respirations, cap refill... ect)
Good luck! Post here what you think about it... to give other people some pointers in the furture!

KayRN910 was definitely right when she said that focusing on growth and development, as well as peds specific disorders, is key. If you know your basics (interventions, therapeutic communications, etc) than you will be absolutely fine. And she was also right that the closer to your NCLEX you are, the better.
I had never taken the HESI, only ATI, but I found my ATI peds nursing book (a general concept review guide) was more than sufficient for the test. Good luck to all of you facing this part of the interview process - you're almost there!
