First I'd like to say I'm really happy this site exists. Anyway, I'll keep it short! I've been a telemetry/medsurg nurse for 2 1/2 years. I've always wanted to work in the NICU, thats been the plan from the beginning. However I had to take what was available when I graduated nursing school
. I've had enough of adult care, I'm itching to get into NICU, and it seems no local hospital (Los Angeles area) is willing to train me. They either want a nurse with prior NICU experience, or a new grad. I've made so many phone calls and visits to hospitals, I'm exhausted and feeling hopeless. How do I get in?! Thank you for any advice.
