I am writing in response to your question about nursing specifically NICU nursing.. It is very stressful and at times heartbreaking and emotionally draining. You see parents who put everything into having a baby and sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. I suggest perhaps you try for a Nicu stepdown for instance the hospital where I worked as a tech in the NICU for 14 years before becoming a nurse
had two other units with the NICU we were a level III tertiary center where we could transport babies to a higher level of care primarily ECMO
that were for feeder growers[my favorite part of the unit], and the SCN where it was overflow for the feeder/growers, and term infants that needed anitbiotics or learn how to eat I too wanted to be a NICU NP but then discovered the care and compassion in the field of oncology and now that is where I am obtaining my MSN-DNP, to be an practicing oncology nurse practitioner, and be able to teach nurses as well. i hope that this gives you a little insight into NICU and helps you make your decision.
