    Go for it. I mostly work in NICU, but I have spent a lot of time in nursery, peds, and even school nursing.

    Go for it! Part of the beauty of nursing is being able to find your niche and roll with it. Years ago, my son was a patient at Cincinnati Children's Hospital. The entire nursing staff was amazing, but the nurses who stood out above the others were guys.

    I've been working in a peds cvicu and very rarely run into issues. Besides a few of the older girls preferring female nurses for bathroom tasks (understandable), I've had a lot of positive feedback from families and it's great experience if you want kids someday.

    Good Luck to you with whatever you decide to specialize in!
