I am moving to Chicago in August and am very interested in the WHNP/CNM program at UIC for next fall. I have two years of VICU, SICU, Neuro ICU, and CICU. I have been trying to get into L&D or Women's Health but NO ONE will hire me without L&D experience! What do you think about getting into the program with no prior experience? Does anyone know any hospitals in Chicago that hire for L&D without prior L&D exp? I am a member of AWHONN and going to the conference in June. I am so passionate about women's health but am nervous about my future with no experience in women's health first. Please help!
