It's been a few months now that I have been sending out tons of applications for peds, picu, nicu, L&D, and mother-baby. Every place was asking for at least 1-2 years experience and since I am a new grad I was starting to feel like there was no hope. It's good to hear that others have gotten jobs in NICU straight out of nursing school
. I feel like there is hope and I think my chances are good.
When I sent out the application on wednesday.. I didn't think I would get a call at all... let alone on the same day as I applied. The nurse manager called me and said "I remember interviewing you for your externship... your nurse manager and the nurses on L&D speak highly of you... would you like to come in on Friday for an interview?"
During my interview... the NICU nurse manager stated again that they speak highly of me on L&D... she asked me like three questions and then began giving me detailed information about the unit... the nurses... and how I would surely get along with staff. It seemed to me like she was talking to me as if I already got it.... but I don't want to keep my hopes too high because she said she still has people to interview. :-/
