How to get my foot in the door

  1. 0 Hi I've been wanting to work at a psych unit since I graduated 8 years ago. I have been an ER nurse for 1 year and a paediatric nurse for 8 years. I feel like I need a change. One of the best experience that I had at my placement was when I was a student in a mental health unit. I have been wanting to apply but the postings that I have seen seem to always require a minimum of 3-5 years of experience. Can anybody give me advice on how to get my foot in the door?

    Try getting a PRN spot. Also, with a strong peds background like yours, child/adolescent psych may be one of your best ways to get the foot in the door.

    Anybody care to elaborate the difference between adult vs pediatric psych?
