Can I shadow before applying in Peds?

  1. 0
    I will be graduating with my ADN in May and I have been thinking about Pediatrics but I would like to shadow a nurse in my local Pediatric Hospital first. We did a rotation in OB but got no Peds experience at all. Is this something that prospective applicants are allowed to do? Who should I contact about shadowing? Advice, suggestions? Thanks!

    Yes you can do it. Every facility has a different person in charge of such things/different hoops you have to jump through. I suggest contacting the nurse manager of that unit to express your interest. He/she will be able to point you in the right direction if there is some hospital-wide person who needs to approve all shadows.
