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.
