ADN in the NICU

Hi everyone! I just finished my first year of nursing school and during my OB rotation, I fell in love with the NICU. I've always been drawn to babies and being in the NICU felt like that's where I'm supposed to be. I'm on track to graduate May 2018 and I've already been looking into requirements for jobs in my area (greater Chicago). It seems like they all either want years of NICU experience or new grads with a BSN or higher. I plan on enrolling in an RN to MSN (or at least a BSN) program as soon as I possibly can.

I've seen other posts on here that say to get a job in labor and delivery or in peds to gain experience but many of those seem to require a BSN as well. I'm going to try to get into those specialties if I can but my question is what other options as an ADN grad should I consider?
