Im an adult ICU nurse with 5 months experience. My goal coming out of school was to be a NICU nurse but I got hired right away into adult critical care. I enjoy my job and I'm very grateful for it, but it isn't were my heart is. I have been applying to every NICU job posting I have come across with no luck. New grad programs and all. The closest I have gotten was one shadow day at a hospital in my neighborhood, but that was as far as it went.
A bit about myself; I graduated in August. Im an ADN with 5 months experience in adult critical care. I completed the Essentials of Critical Care orientation program at my current hospital. (not sure if any other states have this, but it is basically a GN program for critical care with classroom education)
If anyone has and experience or tips from a similar situation, any advice on how to enter the NICU would be very much appreciated
