HEY Y'ALL! I'm a new member of allnurses although I've been reading up on here for a while. I'm about to begin my last semster in nursing school & I'm getting anxious about getting a job when I'm through. I'm in the North Houston area of Spring/The Woodlands. Just wondering if anybody knows of ANY Nicu's in the houston area that welcome new grads. So far i've heard that Conroe Regional does, and St. Luke's The Woodlands does NOT.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Also, I've been thinking of ways that I could possibly get into the nicu before graduation as a volunteer, hired nursing student, nurses aide and so forth. I've contacted 2 nicu's who have rejected any such idea. Anybody know of anybody that would accept any help in those areas?
I realize the NICU is a difficult place to get into straight out of school. Although I have my heart set on it, I do understand that I may have to begin somewhere else. But hey... it doesn't hurt to try your hardest to get to where you want to be right?!
ALSO... (sorry I'm ramlbing)... If anybody in other areas around Dallas/Austin/San Antonia know of any hospitals that are new-grad friendly in the NICU please share
Relocating is definitely an option.
