NICU experiences


Hello all, I am a nursing student in Oregon and am writing a research paper on the effects on nurses working in the NICU. I was hoping some here could share their experiences with me, it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much for your time


it's stressful and makes you wonder why you work there but we always come back....more later if you want

I have been an Rn for 21 years and 5 years ago found my niche in the NICU at a large metropolitan children's hospital. I am now a member of the largest ECMO team in the world. I love my job and wouldn't trade it for anything in the world.

Some days are very stressful, with neonates coming in crashing. Some days I go home and cry, but come back for more because, I figure, somewhere out there, some baby and their family need me.

PM me for more specific info.
