I am a new BSN and have a background in Psych (MA, etc..) ... I want to work exclusively with Peds Psych not adults but every hospital I have worked in has a combo of all. Are there many Peds psych facilities?

There are a lot of facilities that have peds-only units that you could apply to. Not a lot of people want peds psych (heaven knows I can't hack it!) so you should be able to find something.
I personally haven't heard of many peds psych hospitals though...that's not to say they can't be out there! But most of them are either peds psych in a peds hospital, or a peds unit in a psych hospital.
