Re: EN in pediatrics / placement

The local TAFE here back in 2011 was placing students for their paeds placement at a childcare centre (I kid you not!).  I have since heard they have pulled the paeds placement all together.  Also the major paeds hospital in this state has stopped taking graduate ENs and instead, if they want to apply they have to have had at least 1 year of experience in adults.  It's the same for doctors and has been for them for quite a long time (can't do your internship in a peads hospital). If you ask around and see if you can organise your own placement, you might be lucky.
