    Hello and Welcome to Allnurses.com

    I am moving your thread to the International UK forum for better response. Good luck in your nursing career.

    The UK actually requires you to become a specialist in Peds while you are in school, if that is the area that you wish to work in. Completely oppositerothe US where you do a "general" program, then you decide what area that you would like to specialize in when you graduate.

    How far along are you with your studies? And I forgot to add:
