If you are aspiring to become a pediatric nurse, that will be most probably because you love being around kids. If that is the case, you will also need to check how strong you are as a person before opting in for becoming a pediatric nurse. if you have an emotional attachment to kids, you may be prone to stress, depression and anxiety, when you see them going through pain and medical procedure. Especially, if you select to work at a ward or division dealing with mortal health conditions such as cancer, nobody could promise that your life will become flowery and happy.
