I have 12 years of acute care nursing experience in step-down telemetry but I want to transition to acute/critical care pediatrics. How can I go about that? I’ve applied several places with no response whatsoever.

You might try getting a job in regular pediatrics, then work up to critical care pediatrics.

Recruiter, reach out to a travel nursing agency and tell them you want a local permanent role. Best thing I ever did! Cost to you nothing let the job find you. Good luck!

Just be persistent. I didn’t have experience either, kept pressing, eventually got an interview and got hired. Especially now with the short staffing how can they really turn anyone away. Best of luck
