I am about to start my Ped's rotation.
I don't have many experience with children, so I am kind of nervous.
I feel I wouldn't know what to talk to them or built a rapport.. It all just feel really weird..!!
normally when I see a kid, I ask them what's your name or how old are you? ( i know, its really lame ><)..
but thats pretty much all I can come up with.. for some reason, it just feels awkward..
and especially with some children that are just very shy and doesn't really reply to anything you say.
Peds nurses, what do you do/say when you first meet your patient?
and any tips on how to quickly built rapport with the patients? =]
