I am a high school senior and I know that I want to be a NICU nurse. I feel that this is were I am called to work and I have a very strong compassion for babies. What do I need to do in order to become an NICU (what training do I need), is there anything I can do now to become more familiar with the NICU, would it be best to take a two or four year college course(any college recommendations), what is the normal shifts for an NICU nurse,what is a daily shift like, fianlly is it easy to be an NICU nurse and a mother? Please provide me with any information on being an NICU nurse and the required training. I'll appreciate it so much!!!
