I just wan to start by saying I read your posts often and they are all so wonderful...you are all great NICU nurses
Ok so here is what I need some help on. I am graduating from nursing school
in December and want more than anything to enter the NICU (this is the reason I entered nursing school) I am the mother of two micropreemies and felt that by being a nicu nurse I could really help these families...I truely know what they are going through.
I am starting to apply for NICU jobs now..and I am scared of hearing "We usually don't take new grads into the ICU" Does anyone have any pointers on how to land a job in the NICU????? I know that people say to do a year of Med Surg first (and I wouldnt mind that on a peds floor) but I know more than anything I want to be a NICU nurse!!!!! Any help that anyone could give would be great.....
Thanks So Much

I am graduating for nursing school
in December, and REALLY want to be a NICU nurse. I am the mother of two micropreemies and I entered nursing because I felt like this is the way that I could help these parents...I really now what they are going through.
Now that I am applying I want to know if anyone has any pointers to land a new grad position for the NICU. So many places want you to have experience...but how can I??? I have done everything I can studies wise (I am on the dean's list) but I need to know if there is anything that may help to get a NICU job as a new grad.
By the way if this posts twice I'm sorry I am new at this
THANKS FOR ANY ADVICE!!!!!!!!!
