I have much to write about but little time to do it. The short story is that I'm pondering a job change in the next year. Originally I thought I'd pursue a bereavement position but lately I've been thinking about pediatric hospice again. This means it's time to research. Would I be a good candidate even though I have little experience specific to pediatrics? When I look at my history as a whole (child and teen bereavement counseling for 3 years, field work placement working with pregnant and parenting teens through county health department, residential counselor for teenage delinquents, youth group leader, mentor to child with autism, etc.), I think I could be a great candidate but I've only had 2 pediatric patients while working in hospice. Any suggestions on what I could do to improve my chances or on good information regarding this field? I'd appreciate it!
