I am just starting an ADN program and with the hope of becoming a NICU nurse when I graduate. I just wanted to get some feedback from those of you who are already NICU nurses. First off will it hurt me to have only an ADN (I live in Colorado)? Secondly is there anything I can do to get my foot in the door so to speak at local hospitals? Do NICU's use CNA's or clinical assistants? it is my dream to be a NICU nurse and I would like to start laying the grounwork to pursue this while I am in school thus upon graduating having a better chance of finding a position. Thanks in advance for your help!
