Transfer to NICU?


Specializes in peds.


I was just offered a position at a Children's hospital on the medical floor. My dream is the NICU and I also had my senior practicum in the NICU. The problem is there are no positions for the NICU at this time, anywhere near me or at the Children's hospital. Do you think I can transfer to the NICU within the children's hospital with no problem, if I start on this peds floor?

Thank you for your responses! :)

Yes. But be sure to look at your hospital's policy for transferring between units. You may have to put in a certain amount of time before you are eligible for transfer.
