    You hit the nail on the head with not being able to get a job because you don't have experience and not being able to get experience because you don't have an RN job.

    Unfortunately thats just the reality of DFW therefor we all have to fight over the GN internship openings. NICU intern positions seem to be pretty rare (the 2 that i applied to were both cancelled and I was told it was for hospital financial reasons.) In general all of the hospitals start internships once in the summer (usually June) and once in the winter (January). Start looking for summer position postings in March and winter in October.

    I would defiantly consider expanding your search to newborn nursery, postpartum, peds, L&D because new grads here can't expect to get the perfect dream job right out of school but at least those areas would get you close enough to transfer in once you have some experience

    Good luck!

    I want Nicu as well but got turned down for all the internships
    I applied to. So at this point after I hopefully pass my
    Nclex I will get a med surg position and apply to internships for Dec and hope for NICU then
