Being an NNP
- 0Mar 13, '13 by Pink TulipAre there a lot of openings for Neonatal NPs out there? I have seen some online but was wondering if someone working in the field could give a more precise description. Is it a worthwhile career? Are all of the shifts requiring 24 or 12 hours and holidays? Also how the wages are. This us for all across the country.

You can look at these two head hunter sites that recruit specifically for NNPs:
Home | Ensearch Management ConsultantsEnsearch Management ConsultantsPediatrix (the company) also recruits for NNPs.
Each hospital has its own rules about shift work for NNPs (8s, 12s, 24s), but I wouldn't count on having holidays off all the time. If you want that, you're better off doing clinic work (doing adults or peds) because ICU care is 24/7.
