  14. Hi Working NICU/Peds Nurses I will be graduating from the nursing program in December and I am already searching through hospital websites for openings. I know that with today's economy it has been hard for many new grads to even land a job especially in the bay area which is where I am located. I just would like to know from you nurses working in NICUs/PEDs if your hospital or unit is hiring at the moment or REAL soon as of 2011?? Will you be opening New Grad programs? If so, where and when? Please let me know. Thanks!
