Because I want to finish school before I have children, and I would like to be finish with my formal education by my late twenties. Is there something wrong with that?
Nope, not at all. I'm doing the same thing. I'm 27 years old, will finish my degree by the time I'm 28 years old and DH and I hope to have kids by the time I'm around 30 years old. But I'll have over 6 years of NICU experience by then (at a large level IIIC plus agency at various other hospitals).
On the other hand, many people do have kids and go to school at the same time or go to school later in life. You have a great responsibility to your future patients; wouldn't you want other NPs to feel the same for anyone taking care of your kids? I'm really not trying to sound condescending at all, but as you said, you're a nursing student. You have no idea how extraordinarily different everything is for NICU. Even basic things like normal pulse oximetry values are different.
It's great to be ambitious, as you clearly are. I cold-called several hospitals across the country asking if they would hire me 6 months before I graduated, got my NRP as a nursing student, and devoted countless hours to learning about babies. It has served me well. Read everything you can on this forum; there is a ton of information about trying to get a job and interview questions. I wish you the best of luck in your endeavors.
