    I got hired into OB. Yes, its why I went to nursing school. I worked hard for it too. I don't have your average resume and I made sure of that.

    I'm another GN going into NICU. Anything else would have been a disappointment.

    Critical care unit, mostly cardiac though, we're a STEMI-designated hospital. Wasn't sure where I wanted to work, but this hospital had a lot of openings in that department and I knew I'd learn a lot.
    I don't know what I want to be when I grow up. I refuse to pursue an advanced degree til I find my "niche."
    Everyone on my floor says I'm doing really good, but it's definitely not my passion.
    Good luck to everyone at their new jobs!

    Got hired at a big hospital so their med/surg is separate. I am working on the medical floor, which I wanted for the experience, but would eventually like to go into Peds.

    I still have a year and half before I graduate from nursing school with my BSN and my dream is to get a job in the NICU. To all of you that got hired in the NICU if you don't mind will you let me know what hospitals are hiring new grads in the NICU. I still have a while to go before I apply but I am desperate to find out where they are hiring new grads for the NICU. Thanks!

    Was hired into our CRU (Cardiac Rehab Unit) ..... dunno if it's the "specialty" I wanted to go into, but cardiac patients are near and dear to my heart - both my parents (and many relatives and friends) have/had heart problems.....I enjoy the floor and my co-workers. Not to mention, the vast majority of my patients are able to do a lot of their own care (BRP, ad lib activity, etc) Makes the night shift easier (no PCTs/CNAs). I DO feel, though, that it is rather specialized, and we only occasionally get pts for other reasons (overflow) - a med-surg floor would give me a lot more experience with a lot more situations, but.... I love my floor.

    With so many new grads having difficulties obtaining employment, I made myself a promise that I would accept the first job that I was offered which ended up being telemetry. My dream job would have been either neonatal ICU or CVICU, but overall, I think that tele will be an excellent learning opportunity and I'm thrilled to be starting on Monday! Now if only my NCLEX results would post, then all would be right with the world!

    Where do you live? I know in Texas that Baylor, Parkland and Presby (in Dallas) hire into the NICU; In San Antonio Christus Santa Rosa hires into the Nicu and in Houston (where I live) I am not sure, I couldnt get a straight answer from recruiters, but Ithink Texas Childrens an Memorial Hermann hire into the NICU , but ALL of these places are extremely competitive to get into the NICU! The NICU was my dream You will increase your chances if you have a BSN and are either an lvn or work as a nurse tech in that area before applying.. at least that was what I was told by recruiters. Hopefully the NICU isnt as competitive where you live!!!!
