I am currently a NICU nurse who is looking to move to adult ICU. I recently interviewed for a position and did not get it. It seemed that they thought it was unusual that I'm wanting to move from neonatal. I understand that but I explained to them that I am wanting to expand my knowledge Nd there is a lot that we just don't see where I am.
They then asked me if I had ever worked with adults and I was honest about my experience which is limited. I had a lot of experience working with adults as a tech for 3 years and also did a preceptorship in an adult ICU in school.
I feel like my NICU experience may have held me back from getting this job.
Is this possible? What are your opinions?
I would love some insight from anyone but I would really appreciate it if you also interview applicants.
