Hi, I am looking to relocate to the Ft. Worth area within the next 6 months. I have my Associates in nursing and starting back this fall for my BSN. I have 1 year of med-surg experience on a Neurology floor. My goal is to get into NICU. I worked in a NICU during nursing school
and before that for 4 1/2 years as a patient tech/unit clerk. Wherever I was needed that day. I precepted in the NICU during my last semester of nursing school. That is my passion and unfortunately I wasn't able to get a job in the NICU where I was working due to a hiring freeze at the time. What's the RN market like for someone like me? I would also be happy working in any sort of pediatrics, mom/baby, labor/delivery, etc. Something that would still give me experience with babies as a start if that's what it took. I know that Cook Children's has been highly recommended but what other hospitals are worth looking at? What's the RN pay like there? Sorry for all the questions. Just want to see if this area looks promising. Thanks in advance!!
