You are reading page 2 of Interview tomorrow for a NICU position! Any advice?
Congrats to everyone on your new NICU jobs! :balloons: I'm also starting in a level III NICU as a new grad on 2/7. I can't wait! :) I'm very nervous but SO excited!! Good luck with everything!
Here are some tips I've received from other RNs for staring in the NICU:
1) Ask questions!! Lots of questions!
2) Don't ruffle any feathers - many nurses have been there a long time, don't come in with an "I know it all" (don't show off) or "I'm a BSN and you're not" attitude.
3) Be happy, eager & enthusiastic, but DON'T show fear (the RNs told me that some nurses do "eat their young", so don't show fear as that'll just worsen the situation)
If anyone else has anything else to add, please do :)
