Do you have to be more experienced to become a pediatrician than a nurse?
Not exactly experience required, rather much more schooling through a medical program than is required to become a nurse.
Typically, nurses usually have a lot of hands on training because of the classes they have to take however you can get experience by shadowing someone in the field or working in an environment that is more focused on children. I think at the end of the day, both are really great jobs whether a nurse in pediatrics or a MD in pediatrics. Hope that helped some.
