I am brand new to this site and excited to be able to participate in the forums. I just graduated in May with my ADN and will be taking the NCLEX very soon! I wanted to hop on here and ask what your thoughts are on about starting in L&D and possibly switching to NICU? I am in love with both specialties personally, however, in my state they rarely hire new grads in the NICU. It is very hard to get into one, whereas L&D is quite popular and easier to get into (not many available positions though). As you can see by my name I am all for OB and NICU. It is a dream of mine to even be able to work in either unit!
I am really just looking to see if L&D is a good place to start if I want to transition to NICU later on. Thank you!!
