So does that mean you plan to have a career where you never have to work with children? I mean, I'm sympathetic to your emotions, but if you're worried about your actions being fogged because of them during a test
, then you're probably going to face the same thing when you're the assigned RN for a really sick kid at work
, and you certainly wouldn't want their lives at risk because your judgement is fogged due to emotion.
On the other hand, get prepared and get your head right about personal detachment (maybe do some reading up on this skill), and the CPNE will give you confidence that you CAN handle peds patients just fine, when you ace that PCS.
