New Grad in the NICU? - Page 2Register Today!
- Dec 8, '10 by new2nicuRNKeep your head up! If you are willing to re-locate that could help you find a job in the NICU. I am re-locating 1200 miles away for my dream position in a level 3 NICU in a very respected Children's Hospital. Some hospitals regularly hire new grad to the NICU but others want experience.
- Dec 13, '10 by ocean wavesHello new grad! I enjoyed working in a great neonatal intensive care unit for several years. Now I'm retired. At my hospital, the preferred path in order to be considered for work in NICU was to start by working in the normal newborn nursery---not as exciting as NICU, however great further learning about how to quickly recognize serious complications in newborns. Best wishes in your plans!
