Neonatal Nursing

Neonatal nursing is a specialized nursing practice of caring for newborn infants (neo meaning new, natal meaning birth) up to 28 days subsequent to birth. There are three different levels of working as a neonatal nurse: Level I consists of caring for healthy newborns, Level II caring for either premature or ill newborns, and Level III caring for newborns who cannot be treated in the other levels and are in need of high technology to survive. It is the neonatal nurseā??s choice whether they wish to work in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) with the healthy born babies or with the ill and/or premature babies.
