I used to volunteer at Winthrop University Hospital in Mineola, NY in the maternity/nursery and loved it. But they closed the volunteer program for a few months because of flu season, and I'm ready to go back this Sunday. But I wanted to try volunteering in the NICU.

So my first day is Sunday in the NICU and I'm both excited and nervous! Can anyone tell me what my duties might be that might be different from the jobs I performed in the maternity/nursery unit?

I would especially appreciate it if a nurse from Winthrop sees this and could inform me (: Thanks for any help!

I hope you have a great day in the NICU! I do not know the facility you are going to, but on my unit the volunteers usually stock all the carts, create scrapbook namecards for the babies, and sometimes cuddle the larger, more stable infants. Volunteers are so helpful with the cranky withdrawl babies!

Hope you have a good day and everyone is welcoming to you
