New Grad Nurse Residency Programs

  1. I am writing a cover letter to apply to a nurse residency program, but I'm not sure to what extent I should tailor it to the unit I'm interested in. I really want to be in MotherBaby/L&D/Obstetrics and that's what most of my extracurriculars revolve around, but I don't know whether it's a perceived strength or weakness to be set on a unit already. Are Residency Programs pretty general, or are you likely to focus on a field or end up in that field afterward?
