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!

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!
