New grad going into nicu?

  1. I everyone. I'll be graduating with my ADN in December. I really liked the NICU and my aunt knows the entire staff and can get me a job in the NICU at the hospital I am currently an aid at right out of school. My question is.. If I start off in NICU and decide I would like to move to labor and delivery or a med surge floor will working in the NICU be a helper to getting hired elsewhere? Or no because it is solely working with infants? Thanks for the help !

    First, I don't want to burst your bubble but never count on getting a job because a family member works there. You will still have to go thru the whole process of being hired.

    We have people who move to different areas on and off, it depends on the position and if more experienced people apply also.

    Good luck!
