For example: studying a medical dictionary. Pediatric Nursing -After you graduate, you will have to take the NCLEX RN test to become a registered nurse. It is a comprehensive computer based test designed to measure your skills and knowledge in relation to the demands of the job. - After passing the test, you will be an RN and is now able to get a job. - As a registered pediatric nurse you provide preventative and acute care in all settings to children and adolescents. Also perform physical exams, diagnose illness and injury, and provide education and support to patients' families. Cons -Usually you will be offered a job right out of college by your intern work. The yearly earnings would be about 50,000$-150,000$ depending on experience. - Caring for the kids and their families when they need support the most is very rewarding. - The hours are so flexible, that you can work either days, evenings or nights. - Health care organizations take infection control and job safety very seriously.

During clinicals, a CNA works closely with patients. They are responsible for basic care services such as bathing, grooming and feeding patients, assisting nurses with medical equipment, and checking patient vital signs. - At the end of your senior year you will have an internship in a hospital or clinic. High School Registered Nurse Pros -There is an extensive list to describe the qualities of a person fit to be a pediatric nurse such as being: Caring, Smart, supportive, a good listener, flexible, giving, organized, hard working, life long learner, open and supportive of change. -Communication is constant through out the day. It is important that communication both verbal and non-verbal be clear and concise. You do not often have all the time you would like to spend with a patient so clear communication can improve time management. - A typical day at work can be stressful, and every decision you make can and will effect your patient’s lives. It is very busy, but there is always so much to learn in a day. It is key to stay organized and multi-tasking will help reduce stress. -As a nurse you become a caretaker of many. Thus it becomes difficult to remember yourself and take care of yourself. So realizing how to handle negative experiences is a part of growing as a nurse.

Transcript: I will attend Kennesaw State University and plan on majoring in nursing. I completed the three year nursing program at River Ridge. I serve at the Lighthouse Family Retreat. This is a retreat for cancer families. At age 6 my life was changed forever. My sister, Caroline, was diagnosed with brain cancer at the age of 2. I spent many days sitting at the AFLAC Cancer Center with her while she was getting treatment trying to entertain her. I have learned this is much more than about helping others than it is about my own personal experience. These are a few of the children that I know personally who have fought this fight. My Project Facilitator I also worked with Tammy Bates who works with the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation. She helped me get into contact with the AFLAC Cancer Center at Scottish Rite. She has a lot of background with childhood cancer. She lost her son Brody to cancer. Learning Product He inspired many people even though he did not live a long life. Thank you! Questions? Immunizations #LIVELIKEBELLA My project facilitator was Mrs. Cook. She works at Mill Creek Middle School as a 6th grade social studies teacher and she is in charge of Beta Club. She graduated from the University of Georgia with a Bachelor's degree in Social Science Education. She loves utilizing technology and group work. She completed her technology endorsement where she learned to use her important technology skills in the classroom. She obtained her Master's degree from Nova Southeastern University in Learning and Curriculum and truly enjoys finding new ways to teach. It's Not About Me Anymore! Carmen McCullough Mrs. Farist Creed Meetings with Beta Club These appointments often take 6-8 hours! This can be very difficult on the whole family! Dustan's family has been told more than 20 times he would die. His father once carried him out of the hospital to take him to new treatment. He currently plays the drums in a Christian band. Creating the Product My research paper focused on pediatric immunizations. There has been a trend recently whether immunizing children can cause significant issues. For example, some have pointed to autism as a concern. Interesting fact: Once the bags were completed, I took them to the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation. This organization helps families who have children that have been diagnosed with brain cancer. My family has been very active with supporting them. PBTF offers many ways to be involved with sick kids. For example, they offer many 5Ks, parties for the families, and funding when families cannot pay their bills. Every Tuesday their organization is at the Brain Tumor Clinic at Scottish Rite. They provide breakfast and lunch for the families and try to entertain the kids. This is where my Cheer Bags will be helpful.They will deliver the bags to the AFLAC Cancer Center. AFLAC has very strict guidelines about who can deliver things. I was able to donate 36 Cheer Bags to the PBTF. This will probably be enough for 8 weeks of Brain Tumor Clinic. Dustan * Neurologists, who prescribes medications for seizures. Most kids who have brain cancer have seizures. * Surgeon, this doctor looks at you MRI's to determine if you need surgery. * You also see many therapists, nutritionists, social workers, child life specialists, neuro-psychologist, and several nurses. Siblings are annoying, we all agree! Until they are diagnosed with CANCER! Then.EVERYTHING.changes. My product was cheer bags for brain tumor patients. These were hand colored by members of Beta Club at Mill Creek Middle School. The bags contained many items, such as stuffed animals, puzzles, coloring books and toys. The first Wednesday of every month, I met with Beta Club at Mill Creek Middle School. At these meetings we talked about donation items and guidelines from the hospital about what can be donated. The students of Beta Club brought in donations consisting of coloring books, stickers, toys, and many more fun items. Immunizations are made from materials that cause concern. Some feel that this may be the reason why some children could have problems with these shots. I chose this product because having appointments at the AFLAC Cancer Center can be very exhausting. When you have an appointment at the ALFAC Cancer Center you see many specialists. * First you go to triage and have lab work done. * The remainder of your appointment is seeing all your doctors. * For example, Oncologist. This is the doctor who is in charge of the chemotherapy that you are taking for your cancer. After we collected all the donations from Beta Club, I started to stuff the bags. This was a hard process because the AFLAC Cancer Center treats patients that range from babies to teenagers. I wanted to be certain that the bags were going to be helpful during their appointments. Donating I worked more with Mrs. Cook than Ms. Bates due to scheduling. I learned so much from my senior project. For twelve years I have been the sister of a brain tumor patient. It is a

When I was in tenth grade, my two year old cousin Jeremiah was hospitalized. Jeremiah just had his tonsils and adenoids removed, when he woke up the next morning he was barely conscious. Seeing him in the hospital really scared me and made me want to help children who are in similar situations. 1. Gabrielle Alisa Rayman 2. Family Oriented 3. Varsity Cheerleader 4.

With some careers, it's constantly the same thing every day, which I think would get very tiring. Pediatric nursing, however, would offer new situations and variety in life. It's a job that would make a difference in the lives of others every day.
