info please

  1. I am a CNA currently attending a Tecnical/Community college. By December of 2003 I will be a RN. I was wondering what I had to do to be able to work in a NICU. I would love to start asap. So what is it that I got to do to be able to work in a neonatal?
    Please help me by responding.

    Why not apply for a tech position? That is if your area hospital's nicu uses them. I learned a great deal by doing it myself. Tech's can do vitals, po feeding's, diaper changes, etc. You also get to observe lots of procedures. Were I work, techs assist the neo with circs. You can sell yourself by mentioning that you are a nursing student and interested in becoming a neonatal nurse after graduation. Good Luck
