Hi everyone, SO I just joined ALLNURSES to find other nurses who can help me land a NICU position. I got so discouraged by seeing that all these NICU positions required NICU experience, and then I saw someone say you should not join MEDSURG if you truly want NICU. Unfortunately, MEDSURG was the only position I recieved. NH RN jobs are tough right now so I am willing to relocate anywhere to get the career I want. I am technically still a new grad who's dream and passion is to become a NNP, and just graduated with my ADN in school for my BSN. I have been working on a MEDSURG floor for about 5 months, since june 2012 so i have some experience. I am dying to get into the NICU.
Any pointers on how to make my resume stand out?
What are other things I should be doing?
Would it even be possible for me to get in to the NICU with just a few months of medsurg experience?
Also, any states that nicu rn are in demand because they sure aren't up here in NH
