    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.

    Best article I ever read. I've heard so many histories about new nurses that give up on their first year after graduating that... I had considered dropping school but this article just gave me a new prospective. I think I have a chance!!!

    I know this is old but I just found it and it made me cry. Thanks for so perfectly articulating the roller coaster of the first year as an RN, and for reinforcing my reasons for applying to transfer to the NICU.
