I have enjoyed working in the neonatal/pediatric field. It has been rewarding working with children and their families.
Pros: flexible work days, great co-workers
Cons: staffing, pay
I have really enjoyed working in the neonatal/pediatric field. I work with a tremendous group of people, who work together, help each other out. Resource for senior and junior therapist. The hardest part of this job is no matter your skills and experience, you watch patients expire. You can only watch what families go through while their children are lying in the hospital, not doing well. The most enjoyable part of my job is watching children leave the hospital, to be home with their families. It's rewarding when you use your education, knowledge, and experience to treat (and make well), these children. I still have my panic moments, when a child comes in really sick, and pray that I'll be able to do "enough" for them.
