  4. Maybe an ignorant question, but I'm asking it anyway....

    Also, most people go into nursing school thinking they want to be a certain kind of nurse....I thought originally that I wanted to be a L&D nurse.....BOY WAS I WRONG. I wouldn't touch it with a ten foot pole. It's just not for me. I have much res...

  6. Maybe an ignorant question, but I'm asking it anyway....

    I would be really careful about this program. This is not an easy specialty. They do NOT teach you what you need to know in a BSN program about sick neonates,, it is all learned basically in the unit.....and boy is there a lot to learn. I would sugge...

    I completely agree with RainDreamer
  14. Charlotte Hospitals--NICU

    I'm thinking about moving from ATL to Charlotte, NC and starting in a NICU. Are any of you from the Charlotte area? Is there anyone out there who knows the area well? I'm looking for level III NICUs. PLease let me know of what you think of the hospit...
  15. Are there any Adult ICU nurses who switched to NICU out there?
