I am graduating in May and live in MA where there is virtually no hope for new grad nurses. I am dying to be a NICU nurse. Does anyone know of any NICU new grad programs anywhere in the country????

I am assuming you are referring to Neonatal instead of Neuro because NeoICU seems to be an area sought by many new grads - and they run screaming at the thought of working in Neuro - LOL. In my area of the country, these training programs are filled even before they are announced - by new grads who have an inside source.
I am curious as to why you feel that this is your 'calling'. My background is Critical Care & I have worked all areas, including NICU (Neo & Neuro). Although I did find working in Neo much less physically taxing, it was way too ethically distressing for me. I gladly headed back to working with adults at the first opportunity.
