There is no 'better' one. It depends if you'd rather work with people under or over 18 and what type of work you want to do in nursing.
What do you mean by adult nursing is a more 'dirty' job?

Mm
Both adult and children nursing can be dirty jobs as no such thing as a clean job in nursing.
If you don't want to get dirty then find something else as you there to get dirty if need to but if you are properly covered up with provided PPE then you shouldn't get dirty yourself.
End of day do you want to work with adults then do adult nursing or vice versa if you perfer children.

Adult nursing has a bigger choice to pick from.
Should try midwifing as that's very dirty job especially when delivering babies but that would be too dirty for you.

Both pay same wage on qualifying.

By "dirty job" you mean personal care then I recommend you consider mental health nursing as there is none to very little personal care depending on where you work.

I chose children's nursing just because I'm good with kids and they generally have a happy environment
but it's your decision - maybe watch some YT vids on each and see which you like better
but if you're going into nursing calling it 'dirty jobs' maybe consider something else bcos u shouldn't have that outlook on patients - I understand blood vomit etc isn't the best thing but end of the day the people are unwell and it's your job to care for them
similar things u might be interested in instead : occupational therapy, paramedic science, social work (I was looking into these as well before I picked)

I'd love to know how adult nursing is more of a "dirty" job than children's nursing. Both involve all sorts of bodily fluids and strange wounds.

no i should have been more specific i understand generally how nursing will be, however, my teacher was telling me that with adult nursing there is a huge difference she was telling me that most involve bodily fluid i told her would it not be the same as child nursing but she was saying no at that point I was so confused aren't both route similar.

What do you actually think adult nursing involved? Because I'm an adult nurse and there's a lot more to my job than dealing with urine, faeces and vomit all day.

ok guys stop attacking them lol I'm sure they didn't mean harm when saying its a dirty job, they haven't studied nursing yet so you can't blame someone for not knowing exactly the roles of a nurse jeez

Noone has gone out of their way to attack OP - the point has been to assist and educate.

i kinda get wht you mean in a way theres more that can go 'wrong' with adults like open to more problems because its such a large age bracket 18+ whereas child nursing is below 18+ . I've chosen to apply for child nursing because I work well with kids but also you need patience because they're kids and can't verbalise whats wrong with them and its also hard to ask parent because they aren't the kids to know what's wrong so its more responsibility on you however not to disregard adult nursing because both involve peoples livelihoods.You need to think about if this is good for you because although it may be less common its mentally draining especially with the NHS having less workers but also its not all great because nursing you'd also be bearer of bad news.It comes to what you want to do and if you want work with children or not.I knew because I did a bit of work experience at a primary school and realised I can work with kids.
