Hello there, long time no post! I have a doozy of a question!For the longest time as a nurse I have had no idea what I actually wanted to do career wise. I became an RPN, went back for my BScN, and always assumed that throughout the years of schooling eventually I would gain some practicum experience that would really "speak" to me and push me towards my calling. It didn't happen. I have experience as an RPN in LTC, community, and med/surg nursing, and have done placements in med/surg, palliative, emergency, psychiatric and public health nursing. Still nothing.Then, last year my son was born prematurely and spent some time in the hospital (level 3 NICU, then level 2 NICU, then SCN), in total about 6 weeks. Since my experience, and as I prepare to return to work, I can't shake this feeling that I am being drawn towards NICU nursing. I've never wanted to work with babies, or parents, or children of any kind to be honest (hence the lack of placements in those areas, it was NEVER an interest of mine), but it's as if something in me has changed.So here's my question - Have any NICU moms (or dads!) successfully transitioned into NICU nursing? Is this even possible with the emotional piece involved? Do you personally know any NICU RNs who previously had a child or children who spent time in the NICU? I'd love to hear (and not just personal opinions telling me what a bad idea it would be, but actual experiences or experiences of someone you may know).
