Hi I am almost an RN. I have an 8 week externship in a NICU and I love it. However, I am concerned about having enough time to spend with my family, I am a wife and mother. For those of you that are NICU nurses, how do you manage time with your family.
I am also concerned about job opportunities. I understand that by working in the NICU I will be limiting my skills. If I continue my education, I would like to pursue a NNP degree but again I feel as though I am limited to working in the hospital and have a schedule that can fluctuate often. For any NNPs, what are your typical schedules like?
Aside from that, I have no complaints thus far. Your advice is greatly appreciated!
