    Hello there. I am not a dude, but couldn't help clicking into the male nursing forum, as I saw "pediatric nurse." What kind of questions do you have? I graduated in May 2007, and just passed my nclex rn about a month ago. I went straight into peds, and I love it. On my floor there are three male RN's between days and nights together. Good to see a guy who appreciates the beauty and serenity of children, and the rewards of helping them get better.

    Yes, you can apply for a peds position straight out of school. Hospitals usually offer internships that are intense daily classes and clinical instruction on what's normal/abnormal for the pediatric population. The one at my facility is a full 24 weeks in length.

    Best of luck

    Actually, it seems that there are a fair number of male nurses in pediatrics, from the polls I've seen. It's definetly one of the top 4 for male nurses, along with Critical Care, ER, and Psych.
