I have peds experience and critical care, I would like to try NICU, is 47 too old to break in to nicu nursing?

No way!. I have seen nurses older than you break into nursing as 2nd or third career. You alraedy have the experience so why not go for it?

Absolutely not!! No age is too old to try something new. I love being in the NICU, best choice that I have made so far

No I don't think so! You probably have lots of experience and more confidence than a new grad, maybe kids of your own. Id rather teach an older experienced nurse than a young newbie.
