So my dream has always been to work in a NICU. In nursing school I did an externship in a Level II NICU for 10 weeks and loved it..and hated to leave and go back to the big people nursing world. When I graduated I applied for a million NICU positions but had no luck. I emailed managers and tried to express my passion only to get the "good luck in your job search" emails in return. So I was offered and accepted a position at a large university hospital in a Bone Marrow Transplant Unit. I tried to be passionate about this speciality (as many of my coworkers are) but I still just don't feel it. The past year that I have been employed there, I have TRIED to give this place a fair chance but I still miss and love the NICU. So I finally got a fire under my butt and decided it's time to make a change..the longer I stay in oncology the harder it will be to leave. So I applied for 3 Level III NICU openings at my facility and emailed the nurse manager with interest in transfering. We are now in the process of setting up an interview...just like that! :) i know i am at a disadvantage because of my oncology experience and i'm a little out of the game with babies...but i am willing to do what it takes. i was able to express this to her and luckily it worked out in my favor.I am mostly just wanting to share my excitement but also wondered what peoples thoughts are on the situation. if a manager straight up tells you she is going to contact nurse recruitment to set an interview up and 3 days later nurse recruitment contacts you..obviously this is serious right?? if i rock the interview, the job should be mine??
