Ive been working as a med/surg/tele nurse in a med/surg and observation unit for about 9 months now and it is NOT where I want to stay. I got into nursing with the desire to be a NICU nurse, that desire and passion has not gone away. I have been trying to get an interview in a NICU bt i cant even get a call back or an interview. I guess im just getting a bit discouraged and frustrated. Can anyone give me some advice, or even some encouragment would go a long way!! Do I just need to get more experience? Is it really a good idea to get a general med/surg background if you want to specialize in NICU? Anything is helpful!! Thanks sooooo much in advance!!
