I just wanted to welcome you to the NICU board too! I'm sure your experience will be very, very helpful as you learn to care fo the little ones. It's incredibly exciting and rewarding to work in the NICU, in my humble opinion.
Along with the other book suggestions, I'd like to add:
Neonatal Medication & Nutrition: A Comprehensive Guide 2nd Edition
by Karin E. Zenk, PharmD, FASHP with Jack H. Sills, MD and Robin M. Koeppel, RNC, MS, CPNP, published by NICU-Ink Book Publishers, Santa Rosa, CA, ISBN# 1-887571-07-8. The Neofax
is definately a must, but this other one has loads of good information and a home study CEU course included if you want to do that.
Physical Assessment of the Newborn: A Comprehensive Approach to the Art of Physical Examination, 2nd Edition
by Ellen P. Tappero, RNC, MD, NNP and Mary Ellen Honeyfield, RNC, MS, NNP, also published by NICU-Ink, ISBN#1-887571-00-0.
Preemies: The Essential Guide for Paraents of Premature Babies
, by Dana Wechsler Linden, Emma Trenti Paroli, and Mia Wechsler Doron, MD, published by Pocket Books, ISBN# 0-671-03491-X is great for helping you learn some great ways to communicate information with parents.
The Core Curriculum for Neonatal Intensive Care Nursing
and Handbook of Neonatal Intensive Care
mentioned in earlier posts to this thread are all absolutely wonderful resources too!!!
Best wishes for a rewarding career in the NICU! Be sure to stop by here often too.
