I like the modern new NICU I work in and I admire the doctors and nurses I work with. All are caring and have great integrity I enjoy working with the premature babies and assisting their parents through the difficult NICU experience. I love helping parents overcome challenges with their infant. What is difficult in the place I work is the fact that management may peg individuals into a certain work/skill level, rather than cycling everyone through the challenging and crucial learning they would gain. Everyone, in my opinion, is well trained and should be given experiences that coincide with current certificaions, for their own growth and also for the safety and benefit of the unit as a whole. I see some managers as unwilling to train/support. All should be given experiences of learning.
Working with premature infants, their parents and a team of integrity.
High stress: not enough staffing at times
