I work in the NICU and our facility has a very strict attendance policy! I am really sick with a bad cold, cough etc.. and Its Christmas weekend, what do I do,I was thinking if I worked a desk job or even a different unit, I probably could go to work but I would feel terrible if I happened to compromise a baby just because I didn't call in sick. I know we will be short staffed and I could probably work, but I don't think it would be right, what do I do??!
During my summers off of nursing school, I worked in the well baby nursery and post-partum as a tech/student nurse. It helped me a lot and now I receieved a job as a NICU nurse. I love it and think working there in the other areas helped me get the position over others. good luck!!
I wish i saw the great pay in nursing. where is it??? My friend with no college education gets paid more at at factory!!! Tell me what is great about the pay. I love my job but I don't do it for the money.
I am so happy i found this site. I joined today and reading everyone's comments and stories reminds me of why i went into nursing. I am a new nurse. I graduated in may of 2003. I worked pediatrics for 6 months and now I have been in NICU for 3 and 1/2 months I LOVE IT.!! I have found out why God put me here. I love taking care of my babies! I love explaining and teaching parents and families. I love working with my co-workers and sharing stories and ideas. Thank you for all the great advice. I am still learning a lot! Everyday i work I want to learn more and more. I only received 6 weeks training in a level 2 which was ok. I am doing level 2 by myself now and I am starting to learn level 3 now. I really want to be good at level 3 and learn all i can. I would love to take the course about neonatal education that a user earlier refered to. Any more information on continuing education would be great.
