will school nurse help lead to pediatrics unit?

  1. I am going to be a school nurse, I am a new nurse and wondered if going straight into school nursing will help or hinder my future chances of getting into peds? I know it gives me experience with kids(a plus) but I am not getting clinical experience..except while I was in school.

    Any feedback is appreciated!

    There's another thread about this same subject right now. If you become a school nurse immediately out of school, IMO, it's not going to be as helpful to you in getting into a pediatrics unit as other acute-care experience would be.
