How can a new grad get hired into a specialty area?

What if you don’t want to work medsurg when you graduate from nursing? What if you want to work in a specialty area? What if you want to work L&D? OB? ED? ICU? OR? PACU?

We all know hiring new graduate nurses into these areas is tough because these areas usually want a nurse with prior staff nurse experience. I thought I’d give you five tips that might help you get a leg up:

1. Find out the details. Don’t believe rumors.
2. Request a personal one-on-one conversation with the manager.
3. What do you have that they need?
4. Do whatever it takes.
5. Be OK with not getting what you want.
