Hey all! Have a pediatric interview today! I have wanted to be a pediatric nurse since I was 13 years old, so to say I am a little nervous is an understatement. I spent a good 15 years as a pediatric patient myself with a lot of time spent inpatient. I know what it means to be a kid in the hospital. Anyway, this is my dream. I'm so scared I will screw it up. Ive been working for 2 years on med surg, and love being a nurse. I had wonderful pediatric experience while in nursing school, and wonderful care given to me in my time of need. The nurses who took care of me were the reason I went to nursing school and I do what I do. I think of them and how they made me feel, how they made my family feel everyday I work. All i want is a chance to pay it forward. So, if anyone reads this and could send some good luck my way, I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks for listening!

Good luck! Let us know how it goes. I've been a Peds nurse for 35 years & wouldn't trade a single day of it for anything!

Wishing wishing wishing for you to get your dream job! I started in peds too as a result of the nurses who took care of little bro with childhood leukemia (he's 43 now :-))

Have thought long and hard about different opportunities that may have been right in front of my face all this time! take care!
