I have been over 4+ years of RN experience (most of time in the Adult ED). I have always had a passion to work with children and have been trying to change units to pediatrics or labor and delivery for quite some time. I even started working at a pediatric clinic per diem in the past to help gain experience and exposure into the pediatric world. However, it has been very difficult to get my foot in the door, it seems like most places always want a  few years (acute, if possible) experience. I can't even get an interview to explain my true passion and eagerness to learn. Currently located in southern California and would like to stay in the are, but open to relocating. Would appreciate any advice/leads/specific hospitals or facilities that are open to training those who are new either in pediatrics or L&D? Thank you.
