Nursing Student

  1. Hi all. I am a nursing student and I am interested in working in pediatrics. Is there any advise anyone can give me? Did anyone major in pediatrics or do I just have to hope I find a job in the pediatrics department at the hospital. Thanks

    In the US, there is no such thing as majoring in pediatrics until after you become an RN. You must do rotations in all of the required areas. After you complete a BSN, you could go on and specialize and become a pediatric nurse practitioner..................Once you get your RN, you can apply for a job on a pediatrics unit; or try to find one that has openings for a student after you finish a year of your clinicals.

    Good luck with your schooling.
