    How to get NICU job without experience?

    I am in the same boat. I took a S.T.A.B.L.E class and I stayed after to speak with the instructor who was a NICU RN. I asked her this same question and she told me that if all else fails, they like post partum nurses. This is because you will get experience with "normal, healthy" babies and will know their normal baseline of health. I guess similar to starting in adult med surg and then transferring to adult critical care if that makes sense. Good luck!

    does day shift exist?

    Hi everyone, I am currently an adult stroke RN looking to transition to womens health/L&D. It seems in my area (Los angeles) that day shift positions are near impossible to get if new to the specialty. I have over 5 years experience with adults with my PCCN certification. I already did night shift as a new grad for 1 year and it literally was making me sick being on nights. Plus my husband leaves at 2am for work 6 days a week, so my kids need me home at night. Am i crazy for looking for a day shift position? do these even exist for transitioning nurses? anyone start on day shift?
