For over a year, I've worked as a Trach and Vent peds RN for a homecare company. I also work part time on geriatric skilled floors. I worked in step down during nursing school and graduated in 2011. I would love to work on a pediatric critical care floor. My peds experience is mainly ventilator dependant premies discharged home to about 2 years old. Most require mickey feeds, mouth care, med administration, trach changes, suctions ect. I have other cases with older children and plenty of adult and geriatric experience from working on the skilled floors of a nursing home. My dream job is pediatric critical care. What else can I do to improve my experience and resume to be the best candidate? I have ACLS, but I paid for the course on my own and other certifications will also fall on me. I want to improve my chances, but I don't know that getting PALS before I have a job will help me to qualify or just waste my money. I also have been thinking about leaving my peds homecare job, as it gets difficult traveling especially in the winter. I want to work in peds so I am holding on to this job, but will it hurt my chances if I resign?
