    Thank you all! DixRN- my first day in the NICU was better than I imagined. My team members were friendly and willing to answer all my questions. All rooms have their stethoscopes but my preceptor has her own pair and recommended it, so I ordered that. I have my extra pens along with a red pen, sharpie and highlighter. All of which, I have used. The red pen to write my name all over my Neofax( it walked away in only five minutes ) haha. I suppose the hemostats will be for clamping. Gotta score a pair of those. We are allowed clear drinks by our stations so a nice mug will be a good idea.

    Alas! Tomorrow will be my first day on the NICU. I am going to be shadowing my preceptor. I was wondering what types of things do NICU nurses store in or on their scrubs. Any highly recommended or need to have items? I'm very happy and humbled to be in the NICU tomorrow. thanks!

    Congrats, 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!
