- Jan 11 by rotteluvr31The NICU in the state is at Providence Medical Center in Anchorage. I'm not all that familiar with it, but I do know that some little kiddos get sent down to Seattle for care. Not trying to burst your bubble, but I'm not sure that as a new grad you will get into the NICU. But hey, you never know.
I did see that they were offering some internships in L&D nursing - which might be a way to get your foot in the door. Good luck with your future.
- Jan 15 by nurseitoutThe Nicu at Providence only hires RN-BSN due to the level of care required. In addition, I have never seen a new grad there- I believe they want at least 3 years of level 3 NICU experience. look at their website, I know they are actively recruiting nicu nurses and their job descriptions are usually very detailed and spell out exact requirements for their nursing positions.... Good luck!
