Specialties Pediatric


Hi everyone !!

my name is alicia and I am curious to know how many paediatric nurses are here ? I am a new child branch student ...I am studying in the UK and nearly finishing my common foundation program

So how are you doing in your paediatrics nursing? what made you decide to go into paediatrics?

I've been a pediatric nurse for a year and a half, and the reason i am a peds nurse is because when I was going through my nursing rotations I thought I was going to quit nursing if I had to do adults. Seriously! I hated it. I did my pediatrics rotation and loved it! Kids are just someone said they bounce back really quick and they are just a lot easier to work with than adults...i think you'll like it!

I've been doing Peds in some form since 1996.

I'm currently off work following a big back surgery but plan on going back to work this summer in either Peds office or (my dream job) Peds hospice. For now I am spending my time studying for the PNC exam.

Hi there! I have been working in peds for 8 months and loving it! I will be starting in PICU shortly. I never wanted to work with adults either. My goal was always PICU, but I wanted to get some regular peds experience first. I have learned so much over the last months! :)
