Hi Sarah!! Are you 16 years old? We have a lot of young men and women come to this board asking for how to get into nursing, and I just want to say I think it's great!!
A neonatal nurse works primarily in the nursery, although she/he can also work in special clinics for older babies that were once premature, or she can work in home health, making home visits to at-risk babies. Neonatal nurses, as you may have guessed, work with babies!
How small and how sick the babies they work with depends on the area they choose and the type of nursery (if a nursery is where they work) in which they choose to work. The type of work you do depends greatly on the kind of babies you work with.
Hopefully some of our NICU nurses will be around shortly to elaborate....
