I am THRILLED to announce that after over a year of searching I will be starting a position in a level III NICU in a couple of weeks!
I am nervous and excited! I'd really love to read some resource books to prepare me for my new position. I saw one poster suggest Merenstein and Gardner's Handbook of Neonatal Intensive Care. Are there any other fantastic books I should read to prepare me for this new position? I'd love discussions of physiology as well as nursing care techniques and things like what to watch for, lab values, vitals, etc.
This is my dream position and I want to excel at it. I think that reading some resource information will help me to feel more confident in learning, be able to take in more information as I will have some base knowledge, and help me feel less overwhelmed.
If you have any suggestions to help me out - please do!
