A sure sign your recruiter doesn't understand pediatrics....


is when they tell you "oh, the job doesn't specify that they cohort pediatric patients in a particular section in the ED, but it requires PALS so there MUST be a lot of pediatrics." This is at an adult hospital in a city with 2 children's hospitals and 3 children's emergency departments.

Love those recruiters. I work LTACH, but they ask, "when is the last time you worked as a nurse?"

Pretend I am your recruiter. "I know you said you have PALS and work pediatrics, but have you ever worked with children?"
