Pediatric Nurse Career Advancement The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston (Undergraduate) Being a Pediatric Nurse means

job. Pediatric Nurses often act as

Also, having a strong communication with the children helps with keeping the child calm and comfortable.

Background Specific Duties Licensing Personal Qualities A Pediatric Nurse provides medical care for infants, children, and adolescents. They can work in hospitals, clinics, and doctor’s offices to assist physicians with examinations, testing and immunizations for infants, babies and children. While helping with children, Pediatric Nurses also help with performing diagnostic tests and administer medications. They are a major importance to tracking patient’s vital signs. Also give immunizations and administer medications to help manage conditions and illnesses.

With the economic recession in 2010, the demand for nursing dropped. Today, nurses continue to see a demand for their services.
It is calculated that the demand for nursing will continue to grow by 26% up until the year of 2020. If you have a nursing degree
and no longer want to continue
in a medical field, Biomedical
Engineering could be a second
job offering due to your last experience.
Biomedical Engineers develop devices and procedures that help to solve medical and health problems. Many do research to develop products for use in biology and health.
Biomedical Engineers are found to work in laboratories, research facilities, and hospitals.
Also, a high school diploma will be needed as well as a undergraduate degree.
A graduate degree would be recommended or required if a higher level job was wanted. - Ariana Perez The University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio GPA - Minimum of 2.5 Cumulative and a minimum of 3.0 in Math/Science.
