New Grad - NICU or L&D ?


Hi everyone, I hope you are all staying safe during these crazy times we are living in!

I am going to be a new graduate RN in May, and will be applying to new graduate programs in my local area (Southern California, Riverside/San Diego). I will be applying to any L&D/Postpartum and NICU opportunities I can find because I love and am passionate about both areas equally. With that said, I am having a hard time picking which should be my first choice. In your opinions, which area would I probably find more success if I did my senior internship in Labor & Delivery and the Nursery? It may seem like a silly question, however, due to how competitive these areas are I want to give myself as much success as possible.

Thank you so all for your help!
