    What advice would you give to a nurse who is about to begin a career in pediatrics?

      Your thoughts and opinions are important. It is important to remember when you are asked a question like that that the interviewer will be observing for sincerity. Don't use this as an opportunity to say all of the things you would change in this specialty. Rather, highlight the things that are positive, things that would encourage others to want to be a part of your team.

      Heather's Answer

      "You are about to enter an amazing career. Be prepared to laugh and to cry. You will experience things that will make your own life richer as you will feel blessed every day from your encounters with patients and their families."

      Darby's Answer

      "I would say to remember that you're only human, and you will become emotionally involved. Remember it is ok to cry and laugh. Just know when each is appropriate. Most of all, don't be afraid to love and give your heart away because as a pediatric nurse you will do that every single day."

      Darby's Answer

      "I could probably write a book on some of the things I would tell someone who wants to become a pediatric nurse. The most important thing is- Go for it! If someone has a heart for children and nursing, that person can make a difference. I would remind them to take care of themselves as much as they take care of others and to love and allow others to love them."
