Little about me: I've been working in a 31-bed MedSurg unit for little less than 2 years now and I've been thinking about transferring to NICU. My senior practicum was not in NICU, and my interest in NICU started beginning of this year when I visited my nephew who stayed in NICU for a couple weeks. I love babies but I'm more attracted to and fascinated by the science side of it.
I thought I should re-write my CL and resume before it's too late. Since all of my experience is with the adult population, I thought taking NRP and STABLE certification would make my resume stand out. But in multiple threads, I heard this is not necessary and some even said this will look bad on a resume. Is this true?
Also for everyone who transferred to NICU from a different unit, how did you do it? Any word of advice would be appreciated!
Thank you so much in advance!
