Specialties NICU


I have some questions for experienced nurses?

I am interested in the NICU. Our Childrens Hospital has an ICC Unit- Infant Care Center. What is the ICC? Is it like a nursery step down from the NICU where all the babies are? Or does each infant have it's own room? How many infants do you take care of at a time? Do the parents stay in the room with the infant? I am a new grad and wondering would ICC be better for me to start out in than the NICU? What is your opinion?

I have never heard that term. It could be a step down unit for the more stable babies which we just call a level 2 or a special care nursery like you guessed, but I really don't know. Have you asked at the hospital?

You will have to ask the hospital. Each hospital "names" it's units as it sees fit. Have you tried their website? You might find the answer there.
