To all pediatric oncologists: what keeps you motivated whenever you encounter a terminal child?

I have wanted to become a pediatric oncologist for 4 years now. But, whenever I describe my aspirations to an adult or mentor, they tell me that it will be too hard and mentally taxing. So, what keeps you going whenever the job brings you down?

I was thinking of taking college courses at the community college near me (Chaffey college) and I was wondering if this was a good idea?

I am a sophomore in highschool but I'm not planning on going to the college until next year for my junior year and then continue it into my senior year and then finish everything at that college for my associates degree once I graduate then move on to a four year college for my BSN in nursing. #college #nursing #nurse #pediatric-nursing #pediatric

What is my Nursing Specialty

I've taken a few quizzes and I've found a possible interest in being a pediatric nurse. I do love children, but I don't know if I'd do well in that setting. I'm outgoing, very energetic, not very detail oriented (but a perfectionist at times), I like either working in small groups with people I trust or working alone, and I'm a good communicator. I guess I'm mainly asking any current nurses about what specialty I would excel in. I'm just starting out in my want to be a nurse, and I want to see if this is the right path for me. Thank you in advance! #nursing #nurse #pediatrics #children #pediatric
