I've been in long term care for 11 yrs. Recently did Med/Surg for 7 months. I would love to do infusion nursing. Any suggestions on how I can get a job in this field? Every place I've tried asks for more experience.

Does the hospital you are working in have an infusion center? I suggest to go and meet the manager and ask if you can cross-train to potentially transfer to that department once you have completed one year of service (usually required for job transfers within the company). Also if this is your passion, it would be great to get a certification in infusion that way you are more marketable to an infusion employer. A lot of infusion pharmacies also value IgG certification in addition to infusion cert.

If you haven't yet, try searching for CVS Coram careers. They might have infusion nursing positions that do not require infusion experience.
