Hello, I'm in my last semester of nursing school- set to walk across the stage in two months! This is an exciting time and I'm beginning to turn my focus towards finding a job. Some people say go with med-surg first, but I have no desire to be in adult med-surg and thats why I am in this forum.
First of all, my passion lies with newborn and infant care and teaching parents. My dream job would be in the NICU, my second-choice would be postpartum/mother-baby.
I am wondering what a normal shift is like for current NICU nurses.
I also would love any tips for standing out as a new grad applying to NICUs. Things I would be expected to be familiar with before the interview, things I should research, etc.
Thank you in advance for reading this, and hopefully for giving me some feedback!
