How do I become a Pediatric Nurse ?


I'm graduating as of next year and I've chosen to become a Pediatric nurse; it's a career I know i'll love. I want to go to a Community College and then transfer to a CSU. How do I do that? What is the whole process like for people who choose this path on becoming a pediatric nurse. Money and Grades wise this is the best option for me. Thank you, any advice is much appreciated.

Have you searched this forum? Your thread title question is asked, on average, about 8 times a year. Not much changes in terms of making yourself attractive to pediatric ward managers. If you're asking about the specific path you're planning to take, then you're not really asking about how to be a "pediatric nurse", you're asking about education. So maybe your thread title isn't quite going to get you the answers you seek.
