Any Neonatal Nurse Practitioners Out There?

  1. 0 I'm currently working in a level II NICU, looking to transfer to level III. I'm debating whether or not to go to school to be a neonatal nurse practitioner. Do you enjoy the work? Is it incredibly stressful? Do you have time with family? I know I'm in the area I want to be, just don't know exactly where to go from here. Any of your experiences would be very helpful!

    Thanks!

    I think about it sometimes, but often come to the conclusion that I might be too old and settled. Then, a month later, I start thinking about it again. I dunno, maybe one day.

    Perhaps if you asked your question under the next heading, APN, you might get more responses.
