You'll bring great peds experience, which is always nice to have a "niche" when you come into any ED. I brought renal and ortho experience. Just be yourself. Tell them what you bring to the table, that you love fast-paced work (which you better, if you're going to an ER), and you love teamwork. Tell them you learn quickly. Those are the key things that I look for in a prospective new team member. Good luck! And smile!
