If I become a neonatal NP, will it be hard finding jobs outside of hospitals?
0Nov 21, '12 by gentlerainI'd be more interested in working in private offices or clinics.
The hospitals in my area are hectic!
I just don't know if that is an option.
Also, should I expect to be on call as a neonatal NP (no flexible hours)?
Thanks in advance!
1Nov 21, '12 by llg GuideNNP programs educate people for roles in the NICU -- not for doing well baby check ups or primary care for pediatric patients or NICU follow-up. If you don't want to actually work in a NICU, then it is probably the wrong education and certification for you to pursue. If you want to work with older children in a pediatric setting, then get a PNP (or maybe and FNP). Why would you even want to pursue an NNP if you don't want to take care of NICU patients?
