For nursing, nursing degree pretty cut and dry. For pediatrician, you can choose any major as long as you get the required classes done!

I have a friend who works in a kids hospital and she told me this. One of the hardest things is that you'll get parents who show up Friday, say "oh no, my little Jesse has a bug, please look at them while I go for a 'smoke' " they'll finish that smoke 3pm on a Sunday with a new tattoo, the "sniffles" and carpet bags under their eyes if you catch my drift. The other is the kids who are victims of predators...
Also having kids who's parents are steering them in the wrong direction and there isn't much you can do about it. Sure you can call child services for bruises and scars but what about kids parents who teach them that people who look different are wrong, being lgbtqa is wrong, that a secret group of millionares are eating children? Yeah that part gets tough, also some parents let their emotions take over when their kid is sick. I work as an emt and these parents act like I'm taking their kid to a concentration camp when I'm taking them to the hospital . Like hello! Your kid has a fever you panicked and called me and now you think I'm doing it wrong! I was a cna at a kids home and a kid dying does hit differently. Well I hope that doesn't scare you off. The perks are worth it, I used to have ROY G BIV scrubs and I'd wear them in order through out the week, I played Woodstock for my kids and they destroyed the house, it was worth it! Sorry for the tangent. I hope my advice was good
