Neonatal Care Nursing
Neonatal nurses’ specialists focus on nursing care for new-borns. They can take care of healthy infants, provide focused care for premature or ill new-borns, or work in a neonatal intensive healthcare unit (NICU) exclusively with seriously ill new-borns. You must be a registered nurse with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) professional in healthcare. Neonatal nurses (NNs) and neonatal nurses’ practitioners (NNPs) may work in clinics, community settings, hospitals or nursing care units. This career requires a high degree of diligence and teamwork in the health and nursing sector. You will work closely with parents, neonatologists and other nurse specialists to achieve optimal healthcare outcomes for your tiny patients. Nurses are much more in demand because premature and sick babies need quality healthcare and nursing constant attention. Working in the NICU and monitoring seriously ill or premature infants around the clock, nurses have the most intensive responsibilities. They monitor ventilators and incubators, ensure that babies respond well, and teach parents how to properly care for their children.
