Of course we do codes:lol2:. I work in a LARGE unit. We covered all those scenarios in NRP and that was specific to neonates as was STABLE. I suspect it was your teacher. I think SVT is pretty obvious, I recognized that in babies long before I took PALS. The rest (other than bradys, asystole, tachys or PVCs) are really hard if not impossible to diagnose off the ECG monitors most NICUs use and because NICU nurses see them so infrequently. It could also be because I worked NICU for years before taking PALS, but I just don't find it to be relevant enough to NICU. I think NRP and STABLE are way better. If your NRP didn't go into detail about epi, boluses, CPR and different code situations then you didn't get a very good course.
You can google STABLE on the internet. It's a course specific to neonates and basically goes over everything you should be doing to initially stabilize your babies (Sugar, Temp, Airway, BP, Labwork, Emotional support). I could see how newer nurses would like pals, but if you've been in the unit for a long time I don't think it's particularly valuable. You should already know how to code a baby.
