I am strongly interested in working in the NICU upon graduating from my BSN program in May 2013. I currently work as a nurse tech in a level III NICU in a large hospital in the city I live in, however, I plan on relocating once I graduate. I am well aware of the competitiveness in this specialty and I feel being a new grad doesn't quite make things easier. The city I plan on moving to is not too far away from where I live now (about 3 hrs) but I was wondering how I could increase my chances of landing an interview, how to make connections in a new city, organizations to get involved with before graduating, etc.
Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks!
