There are many many non patient care positions. Things like quality/risk, utilization review, and case management come to mind. As far as if you want to continue with patient care but less acuity you could consider things like LTC or clinic nursing. Codes may still happen in this setting but they are rare. There is no shame with being an LTC or clinic RN even though there is a stigma against it.

I would use your pediatric oncology/bone marrow transplant experience as a selling point. Oncology Navigators need to have some oncology experience to do the job well. Do you have freestanding oncology practices in your area? Apply to them - even if you have to start as a RN and move into a navigator role. Or you could seek out a current navigator via LinkedIn in your area and ask how they got started.

Nurse navigator, certified diabetic educator, school nurse, case manager, informatics.  There are many things you can do besides bedside nursing.  If you enjoy a teaching role, then looking into an area where you can educate patients is a good idea.  If you have performance anxiety looking at staff education is probably not the best idea.
