Hey, i am a 17 year old male student about to graduate highschool and interesting in going into the nursing field, I've always loved to help people (specifically kids) because i like the satisfaction it gives me after all has been done. Outside of school i love to skateboard, i see parents bring their children to the skatepark and they are just trying to learn (riding down ramps), all the other kids would ride past these young kids while they are falling and such... but id be the one to help them out, teach them a bit about the skateboard and help them improve. Anyways, due to the flexibility of nursing and such i feel that this career path would suit my life style because i heard some nurses do 3 day 12 hour shifts then 4 days off?!! which would give me time to help people as a career and still skateboard, because i dont want to end up doing an office job Anyways i guess you could see where this is going.. I know its a long way but my heart is telling me that in the future i should look into becoming a paediatric nurse!My question is, in university what should i be doing to somehow end up becoming a paediatric nurse? are there any classes i should take? and also after the 4 years of nursing is done do i need to obtain a paediatric specialty license, and how would i do this? By the way, i live in Ontario Canada... Basically wanna know the pathway to becoming a pediatric nurse or any nurse specialty like Emergency, OR, etc! Thank you!
