I can't have any live vaccines including MMR.
You didn't go through nursing school for naught, even if you miss on this position.
I would personally advise against taking the NICU position or signing any waivers.
This is from myexperience. My former employer didn't draw MMR, (as of Jan 2006) for pre-employement. Then, myself along with others, contracted mumps from a patient. There was an outbreak among ER staff and staff where the patient was transferred to. The CDC and state were contacted and wel...now most institutions draw for MMR titers and immunity pre-hire and require sufficient levels here.
My immunity is, (knock on wood) healthy. I ended up with a double dose of Mumps! Twice in a row! Just recently I heard from a nurse where I'm doing my internship that he son had them twice too, recently as well within the last few months.
Yet, there were indeed people where I worked and caught the mumps whose titers were low who also refused the attenuated, (right?) virus.
Good luck, there is always a way.
