coming from a different angle

any advice for getting into PACU (inpatient or outpatient) with only NICU (neonatal) experience? It is a different population with different set of numbers, but still similar concepts with airway, drips, pain med, fast pace, critical thinking, etc. Unfortunately a peds PACU isn't an option where I am.

All you can do is apply. Do you have ACLS, and PALS? In-patient and even out patient PACU's recover infants and toddlers, they might look favorably at a nurse who specialized in that age group.
