We have 1 LVN in our NICU, and she has been there for several years. In our nursery, LVN's cannot actively admit (they can do the work, but cannot chart the admission assessment, initiate a care plan, chart discharge needs, etc.), and an RN has to do their initial assessment every shift. They also cannot charge, take transport call, or precept (which isn't necessarily bad, if you ask me!
). As everyone else has said, go for your RN! Good luck!
