- by NICURN2B2012 Feb 13, '12Hi, I am starting in the NICU on 2/20 and I would like to read any and all information specifically related to Neonatal nursing before starting. I like to be as prepared as possible and there just wasn't a lot of information given during nursing school. I know I will learn a ton from my preceptors/mentors, I am type A and like to go in with my best foot forward. My critical care book has limited information, litterally 4 pages. If any NICU nurses have a recommendation for a book to buy or something that would be great! Thanks

- Feb 13, '12 by ContrailCongrats, I start my NICU internship on the 21st. My educator recommended we obtain these four books; Merenstein & Gardner's Handbook of Neonatal Intensive Care, S.T.A.B.L.E., Neonatal Resuscitation Program handbook and Neofax 24th edition(drug book). I received them all today and I am glancing over them. Best to you!

Core Curriculum is also a very good book for a new NICU nurse.
