We did a rotation in OB but got no Peds experience at all. Is this something that prospective applicants are allowed to do? Who should I contact about shadowing? Advice, suggestions? Thanks!

I suggest contacting the nurse manager of that unit to express your interest. He/she will be able to point you in the right direction if there is some hospital-wide person who needs to approve all shadows.
