I've just finished my training in the UK, but i've done the Adult Nursing Branch. However my passion is in neonatal nursing.
Luckily, some neonatal units take on adult nurses, and theres a job just come up in a regional neonatal unit near me. I'm applying for it and they're happy to let me do so, but I've got a lot of work to do in my application to convince them to at least interview me. Loads of people applying are going to have experience, and also will be child branch nurses.
I've made a big point about how passionate I am for this field of nursing. But i'm trying to make it seem like being an adult nurse might give me other advantages.
Can you guys think of any traits that I might have as an adult nurse that I can bring to the neonatal field? Or do you have any tips on what you're looking for from a future applicant, and what traits you'd like to hear about on the job application? I've mentioned that I can care well for the family, obv I'm really used to supporting adults and being their advocate etc.
I really really want this! Thanks for your time and help!
