School project

  1. hello
    I am a 12th grade student and we have to do a project in order to graduate. My topic that I am talking about is nursing and the different field in nursing so i would like to know could you help me out on this an if so could you e-mail me please. what i plan to do when i graduate is to be an pediatric nurse so if you could help me i would really appreciated it. My main concerns for my project would what it takes to become that type of nurse,how many yrs. of college, the cost you would expect, what all you have to do in your daily schedule and also the backgroud information(history). so far this is all.

    First you need to decide whether you want a 2 yr degree or a 4 year degree, (ADN vs BSN. There may be a great degree of differences in the two depending on where you practice. I would go for the 4 year degree (BSN).

    Now for the pediatrics thing, once you graduate you apply to a general Peds floor. It depends on where you work but, most of the larger hospitals have a general peds floor.

    If the hospital in your area will allow you to be a PCT or Tech you might want to work there part time while you are in school. You will get a great education and have an understanding of the hospital and patients when you graduate. You will understand more while in school and make more of your education.

    Good Luck
