I made up my mind with regards to the NICU

  1. 0
    For those of you who don't know me. I am a senior nursing student and I will graduate in May 2003. I decided to do my senior capstone in the NICU and hopefully I will get hired in the NICU when I graduate. Hopefully I will be able to do my capstone in the NICU.

    I am going to get one of the NICU textbooks some suggested on this board and start reading it during my winter break. We have four weeks off so I will start reading the book and studying for NCLEX as well.

    I am VERY excited about the area I decided on and hope that one day I will be REALLY good.

    Don't get the Merenstein and Gardner book for your break; get the 'Preemies' book mentioned in one of the other threads...I recommend this to anyone to start with. It is written for parents, but it's such a no-nonsense guide to the NICU that I *still* find it indispensible. ;>)

    Merenstein and Gardner is still a good book to have.

    I agree; However the Merenstein and Gardner book is geared directly for neonatal nurses and would not be the first place I would suggest that someone start. It is very detailed and may become overwhelming to someone who is not yet out of school. :>)
