Do anyone know of the sites that do not have peds patients in the NPAC and MPAC. Thanks for any information.
The CPNE expectation is that you are professionally capable of taking care of 2 Adults and 1 Peds patient, durning the CPNE. I totally understand apprehension regarding taking care of a Peds Patient. I had a 6 year old girl and had various skin assessments to do, with girls Mother present, who did not speak English. The CE determined the patient would convey to her Mother in their native language what I was doing....other people in my CPNE had babies and teenagers.....you just never know!
My site was Amarillo TX and they had a "Ronald McDonald" suite for children in the hospital. I am going to assume that any hospital that has a "Ronald McDonald" suite would have a tendency to have children in the hospital = pretty good chance you will get a ped.s patient.
I wish you much luck!
