i'm thinking of chg to new spec from L&D, how hard to move

  1. i want to do ED nursing now, how hard is it to try to get into it? how do you approach it, how do you apply for it when they want experience. I want so bad to just send a letter directly to the manager at various facilities "to give me a try".
    I'm not totally burned out, i just want to learn more!!!
    Any tips greatly appreciated. I'm just trying to find out how to get around the recruiters in HR that filter the resumes.

    Make and appointment with the ED manager and tell her what you just said here. Always make appointment. Don't just show up. Their time is important as well. Make you case. Hope for the best. Good luck...

    I know how you feel. I am trying to do the same thing after 10 years in LDRP, just not to the ED. I just keep looking for openings to come around, not sure what else to do, though, I want to get into the clinic...
