    I came by to reread this, as I am nearing my 2.5 year mark. It amazes me to see how much things have changed, I can feel those emotions I wrote about like they happened to me yesterday. I hope everyone that posted, worried about their first year made it through! Still loving my job, even more than I did back then.

    Thank you so much for this. I begin my first day in a Level III NICU in just two days and am terrified. Your article gives me hope, advice and something to look forward to. I think I might have to refer back to your article every now and then, especially when I get to those low points that you speak of. I wish you all the luck in your career as a NICU nurse.
