A person can qualify as a licensed practical nurse in one year. Registered nurse programs take two, three, or four years. Specializing for nurses is largely a matter of experience rather than formal education. However, a nurse can take a Master's Degree in a specialty, such as pediatrics, and then be designated a "Pediatric Nurse Practitioner." Requirements for nurse practitioner status vary from state to state. It's best to check with a local college or university that has a nursing degree program to get information for the state where you live. It is my understanding that you have to have your RN degree (usually 2-4 yrs) then you can get a job that specializes in pediatrics to get your training. I was told that basically RN's are trained to be able to do anything in the healthcare setting, but you get your specialized training hands on.

the easiest way to become a pediatric nurse through an internship (job training) where you receive specialized training and of course, the experience. and also take a CPN (Certified Pediatric Nurse) exam. you need to first become a nurse even before you practice pediatrics. so find a nursing school near you to get you started! www.ena.org www.pednurse.org For nursing, usually, you need: - Biology (at least, but its a plus if you have Physics and/or Chemistry) - English lit/lang for gcse but thats about it.. plus English and Biology are always good choices for A level!

You would need to take the prerequisite classes necessary to become a registered nurse, which include a lot of science classes, psychology, humanities, etc. When you receive your nursing degree you are then qualified to sit for the licensing exam, and will be able to then specialize in pediatric nursing.
