Is PALS required for all Peds travel nurses? I'm a med-surg Peds nurse and I don't need PALS for my current job and I work at a children's hospital. I thought PALS was only for ICU, ER nurses.
The recruiter I'm talking to says it is, even for non-critical care nurses because it's supposedly required by the facilities and by JCAHO. (Not sure what that is.)
PALS would be good to have anyway, but I have to pay for it since the travel agency said they won't pay for it.
Should I take it now or try to find a travel assignment without it?
