Hey Rebecca! I'm so excited to hear that you're interested in pursuing nursing. It is definitely an extremely rewarding career where you learn something new every day and are in a position to make an impact that matters. My best personal advice, especially prior to beginning school, is to keep an open mind!! When I started nursing school I was certain I wanted to specialize in women's health, but when I got to my OB/GYN clinical rotation, I hated it! It wasn't until I got to pediatrics where it all clicked, and I was reminded why I wanted to become a nurse in the first place. My favorite part about pediatrics is the family-centered care approach, forming bonds with not only the patients but also their parents/families is really special. I also worked in pediatric critical care, where family-centered care was still extremely important, but I wanted more of a challenging fast-paced setting. I enjoy the vital details to pediatric care. The pediatric field is such a dynamic field to work in- new research and technology is being discovered every day with capabilities to improve the lives of children for generations to come. I hope this answers your question!
