Newborn Nursery Nurse
A newborn nursery nurse works with newborn infants who are born without complications, at least 35 weeks gestation (not premature) and who do not require any complex care. These infants are typically referred to level I nursery. In contrast, an infant that is a level II or level III requires a higher level of care than a nursery can provide and they are transferred to the neonatal intensive care unit (Bean-Mellinger, 2018).
Newborn nursery nurses monitor the infants’ vital signs, perform routine tests and care, monitor feeding, and help new mothers prepare to bring them home. Experience and training required to work in this field include certification in Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS) and Neonatal Resuscitation Program (NRP). Most nurses will also have experience working in labour and delivery and postpartum care before becoming a nursery nurse.
