There's no such college major as "pediatric nursing." The name of the major is "nursing," and it is so versatile that it will get you into virtually any specialty, including pediatrics.
You have two choices that will lead you to a career as a pediatric nurse. You can (1) earn an associate degree in nursing at a local community college, and then apply at local hospitals or home health agencies for positions in pediatrics. You can also (2) earn a bachelor's degree in nursing at a local university, and apply for pediatric positions afterwards.
