Hi,

I am reentering nursing after 18 months off. I've primarily worked in NICU and OBGYN. I'd love to work in NICU again, but haven't found many open positions right now. I had a recruiter call me about working in a fertility clinic. It sounds fascinating, but I have never worked outside if the hospital setting before. I told him I was very interested, but haven't heard back from him.

Is anyone here in this field? Does anyone know of clinics around Atlanta (I live 20 minutes south in Henry county) that might be hiring? I am willing to drive uo to an hour each way.

I have an interview in Macon for a FT NICU next week, but it will be a 7p-7a position, and I am wondering if I shouldn't be looking for something new to do.

Have you considered Northside (www.northside.com) I heard they have one of the best NICU's in Atlanta. According to their website, they have a 3 full-time positions and 1 part-time. They're night shift though. It also looks like they have a supervisor position open also. Go to their website and looking under nursing-special care nursery in the careers section.

Also, take look at Dekalb Medical (www.dekalbmedicalcenter.org), Grady(www.gradyhealthsystem.org), Piedmont (www.piedmonthospital.org), Emory (www.emoryhealthcare.org), or what about Henry Medical (www.henrymedical.com) which is in Stockbridge. They have a few positions listed in L&D, Women's Services, as well as PRN in the NICU.

Hope this helps. The job market around here seems to be pretty stiff for some reason or another. You may have to find out names and numbers of the nurse recruiters at the facilities you are interested in and call them directly. Good Luck with the Job Search

Thanks for the info. I really need to look more at commuting north of Atlanta. There seems to be so many more big facilities on that side of town.

I have applied to Henry for several of their positions weeks ago but they haven't contacted me. I spoke to the recruiter and she said that she had forwarded it to the dept. and if they were interested they would contact me for an interview.

Are hospitals now looking for BSN? My ADN has never been a problem before when looking for a job, but I wonder if things have changed in the past year around here.

I think it is just your timing. All the new nursing school graduates were just hired by many of the larger hospitals with NICU's etc. Hospitals are really recruiting the new grads because they can pay lower hourly wages than someone who has more experience. I don't know if it necessarily has anything to do with your ADN degree. Though there are now more BSN graduates than ever in the Atlanta area from increased enrollments and the large population relocating to Atlanta. However, I would think the smaller communities in Georgia would need the help the most. You might want to try there.

Yes, it may indeed be timing. It also seems as if the recruiters are slow to respond or are just plain unavailable. It is unfortunate though because there are a lot of nurses out there willing to work. I am a new grad ADN, but I have LPN experience. I having been applying for jobs since I passed boards in March without success. The problem is that there weren't any new grad positions to apply for a few months ago, now that they're available there is more competition for them. Most places are looking for experienced nurses, so you shouldn't have a problem finding something soon.
