Hi everyone! I am posting this in both the NICU section and OB. I am currently a nursing student in my last semester of school!! Woohoo. I am getting ready to start my capstone at a NICU in a hospital I'd love to work in. My main question is, is it difficult to switch from NICU to mother baby/ labor and delivery, or vice versa? These are the only units I have ever been interested in working on, and nursing school
has solidified this decision for me (besides possibly peds). I know it is difficult to get out of these units because they are so specialized, but is it difficult to transition between NICU and LD? I ask because many of my friends who graduated a semester ahead of me already have NICU positions in hospitals in our city. I think I would enjoy working with either specialty, but I want to ensure I could semi-easily transition if I do decide to in a few years after accepting a job. I hope this all makes sense. Also, is there one that would be more helpful for me to start out in with a new grad position? Any advice is welcome!
