I will be moving back to Birmingham next year and I was wanting to get some info on the RNICU at UAB. I have 5 yrs exp. in a Level III NICU and I also received my RNC certification last year. My list of questions are:
-What is the unit like overall?
-Are there RTs based in the unit?
-What is the scheduling like? i.e. self-schedule or set schedule
-What are the educational opportunities available?
-What is the pt:nurse ratio?
-What would my base pay rate be? I currently earn 22.50/hr at EAMC and 25.00/hr PRN in Columbus. I don't really want to settle on any less than 25
-Is parking really a probelm?
-Does UAB pay you for having a certification?
I know there a lot of questions but I would really like to work there. Thank you.
