I have been around the nursing block 14 years or so, I currently work med-surg but have worked just about everywhere except ER. I worked peds about 10 years ago and thought about getting back into that. I like working with adults but also liked peds. I applied to nicu and an intermediate cardiac resp unit I worked on before. I applied 3-4 months ago, heard nothing. I got a call from a recruiter asking if I would be interested in interviewing for ER. I never thought serious about it until now. The recruiter noticed all my experience as a positive thing, finally after being brow beaten for it for years. I am going to interview because I like a challenge and it is an area I have not been in, I have been told I do well during the storm, I keep calm during codes and the like. I am just wondering if any other nurses out there went into ER especially pediatric later in your career, I am in my mid 40's.. sorry for droning on, thanks for any responses. I will interview and shadow if possible just for the experience , I am just leary of another change but that seems to be my mo.
