I will (believing in prayer) be starting school in September in pursuit of my BSN. My goal is to move to Urbana and work at the NICU at FMH. I'm so excited because I just heard that FMH just got upgraded to a level 3 NICU!! Many of my friends feel that I should travel to DC or Rockville for better pay but that's not my goal. The reason I want to work there is because I LIKE the hospital. I want to work close to my daughter's daycare and simply stay in the Frederick area. Helping people and being close to home is what I want to do.
I just want to know what the turnover is like there? The reason for my asking is weird because I'm at least two years away from applying but I'm praying that there will be room for me by then. I know hood college just started an RN program about two years ago to help get more BSN's. Have you ladies seen a big increase in nurses in the last couple of years?
Also, has it been very difficult to get into the NICU in the past? I can only imagine how much harder it will be now! May I also ask what the benefits are like and how are new grads treated there?
Any help will be greatly appreciated!
Sorry, I just realized my post is just rambling all over the place.

Hi! I just tried it's giving me the same message. I'll give it a few minutes, maybe the server needs to reset or something. I'll close my browser and try again.
But I did receive your message though! Weird
