    hiiii everyone. I'm a fairly new grad. I graduated last year in October '13. I worked in adult ICU for 10 months and starting level III NICU this month. I have absolutely no NICU experience with the exception of 3-4 days of observation during nursing school. I'm so excited and nervous. I've read many encouraging and discouraging posts on this thread.i'm just praying for the best. any advice from current NICU nurses out there?

    I don't believe that is a safe assignment, even with an experienced nurse helping you. You're also not likely to be learning anything in that situation.
    Agreed, that is not a safe assignment. I work in an extremely busy level IIIc unit and our oscillator kids are always 1:1.
