Everyone wants to work L&D, PEDS and ED right out of school, it's probably not going to happen unless you know someone, especially now with jobs being so tight, go to the hospital that has a good L&D, PEDS or ED--work on their MED SURG for a year and transfer out--it's much easier to do that, and you'll make money while you are waiting for the "perfect job".
