Hi all, this site is awesome. I love reading all the threads on NICU. I am 49 and finally decided what I wanted to be when I grew up so I am now in nursing school. I am married and have 3 children, ages 11,13, and 16. In the 1980's I worked as a phlebotomist in NICU and loved it, thus I am aiming to go into NICU upon graduation. Thanks for all of you wonderful and amazing nurses out there I know you will all be an invaluable part of my education. Regards, Lynda

Hi all, thanks for the welcomes. I had been searching for a site dedicated to nursing and then to find NICU, WOW! It's like finding a second home. I will be starting my clinical rotations in January, so in the meantime in school I am picking up courses this fall that I feel will be helpful - Pharmacology (from the Pharm. dept.), emergency medicine, pathophysioloy, etc. If you have any other suggestions please let me know. Regards, Lynda
