I am a RN with 2 years MedSurg experience and want to get into NICU nursing I am struggling because everywhere I'm applying wants experience in NICU. I have acls, pals, tncc, nrp, and stable so the only problem I'm having is experience what do I do to make people wanna hire me?

You might want to get a year or two of experience in a related field first. Not that I think it should be necessary ... but it might be necessary if your local NICU's are holding out for people with experience. Apply for jobs in peds, OB, adult ICU, etc. After you get some experience there, you might be more attractive to a NICU.
