No motivation in OB nurse

I have been struggling about what to do next. I've been OB nurse for over six years. I loved it, but the last couple of years I don't have much motivation in learning or advancement in this area. I have been applying other specialty in the same hospital, but so far no luck. OB is such a specialized area and difficult to transfer to other unrelated unit. Most of the units I applied require adult acute care in either surgical or medical experiences. Unfortunately, OB is my only nursing experience. I just can't do any more OB, Postpartum, NICU, or related mom-baby. Is there anybody feeling the same?

Not sure if all you are doing is applying to posted positions, but if you are I would strongly recommend asking your house supervisor to be scoping out the landscape for you. I would also do some networking- offer to buy the manager of a unit you're interested in a cup of coffee and have an informal conversation about what you want to do and how to make yourself a good candidate. Good luck!
