A neonatal intensive care nurse is a licensed registered nurse (RN) with an ADN, BSN, or advanced degree. They care for newborns who need round-the-clock attention. These young patients are typically born prematurely or with some type of illness or developmental defect, which can sometimes lead to long stays in the NICU. Some will need to stay in NICU for two years, and to provide such expansive and dedicated care, NICU nurses typically work long shifts (8-16 hours per day) that include nights, weekends, and holidays. They typically care for one to four newborns per shift.
