    How to get into ICU?

    Good morning, I am a soon to be new grad nurse I am a prior Marine and am also the valedictorian of my cohort it as an adn program I am also interning in the ICU I interviewed for two positions at Hopkins for the ICU floor and telemetry I was offered a job on the telemetry floor but the ICU said they want a bsn and it’s very hard for a new grad to get in despite my experience. I am looking forward to telemetry and working on my bsn but I wanted to ask what can I do to be more competitive for the ICU while I am working? Are there recommendations for nurses on how to transition to the ICU? Please let me know Respectfully usmc2rn89
