Senior Project. What is a Neonatal Nurse Practitioner? A neonatal nurse serves as a primary caregiver for premature babies and other newborns who usually require special care. Neonatal Nurse Practitioners work in
Pediatric clinics and hospitals, often in
emergency and delivery rooms, or Intensive Care Units. What are the job requirements? The first step to become a NNP, students must earn their registered nursing license from their state board of nursing. What is the average salary for a Neonatal Nurse Practitioner? Currently, the average salary for a Neonatal Nurse Practitioner is anywhere between $96,000-$111,000 annually. What are the required skills for Neonatal Nursing? Neonatal nurse practitioners must be fast and diligent, since their response can be critical to the life of a newborn. Did you know that there are 3 different levels of Neonatal Nursing? First Level of Neonatal Nursing. Level One Neonatal Nurses take care of healthy infants. Level Two Neonatal Nurses care for ill or premature newborns. Level Three Neonatal Nurses are responsible for treating severely ill babies. They work in the intensive care unit and look after infants in incubators or on ventilators.

THE END. Then the students must complete a nursing bachelors degree program also known as Bachelors of Science in Nursing. After completing that program, students are training in nursing skills, human anatomy, and pharmacology. Also, to help students gain experience with working with patients in a healthcare facility, a clinical practicum is offered. Upon their completion of training, they may then take the National Council Licensure Examination to become licensed. Some of the issues babies are born with everyday are... 1. Congenital heart defects. 2. Respiratory distress. 3. Having a low birth weight. 4. & many more abnormalities and disorders. Another very important skill needed is communication. Communication skills are beneficial as the nurses educate
families about neonatal, intensive, and postpartum care. Neonatal nurse practitioners must also be emotionally
resolute as their jobs can come with the negative
effects of losing patients who are under their care. Work hours are regular for those employed in offices or physicians. However, those working in the intensive care units and healthcare facilities need to be available around the clock in cases of emergencies. These nurses may even be required to work during weekends, and on holidays. Due to the nature of the job, neonatal nurses need to be extra careful observing safety procedures. Being a neonatal nurse is very rewarding by being able to take care of newborn children. The stressful side to being a neonatal nurse is often witnessing traumatic situations, that may have a toll on your personal life.
