    I would love to work in a NICU. However, our school doesn't have a whole lot of actual NICU specialties available.

How on earth would I even get my foot in the door, when I've never been or at least haven't yet been exposed to a NICU setting???

    Thank goodness I found this board. I am also a nursing student looking to pursue NICU. I was just wondering is there anything that I can do in school to help gear me to going into this field of nursing? Also when looking for a job in NICU would it also be helpful to add in that I am a NICU parent (oldest son 28 weeks, youngest 35 weeks)?I don't know if that experience would help? Thanks for any input! I really appreciate it!
