I am a nursing student and I am very interested in NICU or peds or even L&D. I want to be involved with children somehow. I would really love to work in a NICU. I understand this can be really stressful but I want to make a difference in that babies life whether they are with us for a short time or a very long time. What are the hardest parts about working in a NICU and what do you enjoy the most? Thanks.

I think everyone is different. The hardest thing for me is caring for really sick term babies. Babies that aspirated meconium or have PPH and should be home being cuddled now.
I really love cuddling the teeny tiny ones. The 25 weeker that is now feeding and growing. And I love seeing any baby go out the front door!
Good luck to you!
