Anyone work in NICU?

  1. I'm a new grad from nursing school and am currently searching for a job. I am trying to find a specialty area, which at this point I think I would like anything besides m/s. There is a local hospital (well known) who is hiring in the NICU and no prior experience is needed.
    Has/does anyone work(ed) in the NICU? If so what has your experience been? Good/bad? Too much for a new nurse? I would love any feedback! Thanks! :blushkiss

    I'm a NICU nurse who went straight to NICU as a new grad. I've had a great experience and love the NICU, but I would just say that any NICU hiring new grads should have an extensive orientation/internship program, including time in the classroom and on the unit. I don't think I would have made it otherwise.

    Good luck! Let me know if I can answer any more specific questions for you.
