Hi there, I hope this is the right place to post this question. Since it applies to NICU nursing, I thought this would be the best forum.
I start LPN school in March and have every intention on furthing my education to become an RN. I'm trying to think ahead to start to get my bearings on how do go about things. Lets assume I am a new grad or newly licensed RN. What department would be best to start off in if NICU is where I want to end up? Is it best to just go for the gusto and apply to the NICU's or should I get my feet wet in another department? I was thinking L&D might be a good start since I would see babies is a big focus in the dept or would it be better to start out somewhere else. I know a majoritiy of NICU wants experience..how do you get that if they won't let you in NICU w/o experience and you can't get experience if they won't let you in NICU..
Any ideas/suggestions on what route would be best to end up in NICU.
