I am completing my prerequisites for the nursing school
. I have always thought about going to oediatrics and if all goes well, getting a ANP degree eventually. However, recently I came across the pediatric occupational therapist profession. It seems to provide more flexibility, independence and opportunities for creative expression. Am I right? How is the life of a pediatric nurse in these respects? Also I get the impression that this specialty gets paid less that an average RN abd that it is extremely competitive. Is this correct?
