Hello! I was wondering if I could possibly ask current Pediatric Nurses how long they had to be a 'regular RN' before working in the Pediatrics Department. Do you just need a regular BSN, or do you need a MSN (Masters), since you'd be 'specializing' in a department. Also, how easy is it to become a pediatric nurses? Are there long waiting lists? It seems like A LOT of people want to be pediatric nurses, and I understand, since it seems to be the most rewarding (in my opinion). Thank you for any replies! I really appreciate any comments.
