How do you exactly become a Pediatric Nurse?
I was looking up this career online, and I'm really confused. Do you have to become a Registered Nurse first and then go into more schooling to become a Pediatrician or do I just major in Pediatrics and continue from there?
1st course: Major in Nursing -> Become an RN! -> School in Pediatrics -> Level up to Pediatric Nurse!
2nd Course: Major in Pediatric Nursing -> Become a Pediatric Nurse!
The steps I have listed so far are the basic classes, tests, and programs needed to become a Pediatric nurse; however, there are a few additional things you can do to help move the process along! I recommend you volunteer at your local children's hospital. It also is very helpful to get an entry level job at a hospital or any other medical facility (secretary, nurses assistant, medical assistant). Taking these steps will put your foot in the door for when you are ready to start applying for jobs!
