Hi everyone. I have a question to all my Pediatric Nurse friends.

I am currently furloughed from my job in Pediatric Urgent Care due to how COVID is thankfully not affecting our little patients. Now, my company is having a rough time right now and I'm not sure when they will recover. Thankfully, I am receiving unemployment. IF they don't recover and take me back full time at full pay before my unemployment ends, I was wondering if anyone has some suggestions on another area of Pediatrics that may be good for me in the interim? I'm not the best at IVs or Urinary Catheters. I have a background in the PICU which I found a little too stressful. Urgent Care is great, but I don't see any Urgent Care recovering quickly after the Pandemic is over. I've always loved Psych, but I feel they won't hire you if you don't have experience, but how do you get that? 

Anyone work in a "lower stress" area of Peds that might be a nice transition for me for now, or maybe one I might fall in love with? 

Thanks, hope everyone is safe.
