Usually when a baby is born the baby would go into the care center (many names for the baby room) but there are special rooms for sick and premature babies like the ICU (intesive care unit) where the nurse would help and monitor the baby's breathing and of dehydration and to feed either to the mother or in an iv.

Neonatal Practitioners?

Despite the best medical care, many women find themselves in labor before the baby is due to be born. A pregnancy is considered full term after thirty-seven weeks gestation. Often, babies born before the thirty seventh week of pregnancy have difficulty breathing, maintaining their body temperatures, and have a feeding intolerance. Neonatal nurse practitioner work involves caring for these tiny babies and providing a valuable link between the highly trained doctors that care for these premature infants and the new parents. Neonatal practitioner work is part medical and part therapy, as the new parents often look to their baby’s daily caregiver for support and reassurance. Working in this field can be emotionally challenging, but the rewards of helping a premature infant reach the required goals to go home with his parents outweighs the negatives of the job. Premature and critically ill newborns have a much higher rate of survival as the advancement of technology to assist them through this difficult stage of development is continually improving. Most neonatal practitioners work under the supervision of a doctor that specializes in neonatal care. These nurse practitioners monitor vital signs, alert doctors and respiratory teams to problems, administer medications, feed infants through feeding tubes or with bottles, change diapers and bathe the infants in their care. Because many of these infants have life threatening illnesses or problems related to prematurity, neonatal practitioner work requires good judgment and the ability to work well under extreme amounts of stress. Neonatal practitioners must obtain a bachelor or master level degree in nursing and pass state certification exams. Many states also require continuing education requirements be met to remain licensed long term. The majority of neonatal practitioners work in a hospital setting, either in the maternity ward or at a specialized children’s hospital. Growth for this area of medicine is on the rise, due to the fact that more advanced technology allows women who could not maintain a pregnancy previously to successfully carry a baby until it is considered viable. The average salary for a neonatal practitioner in the United States is between $80,000 and $100,000. The advancement opportunities for licensed neonatal practitioners are typically management departments within the hospital Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, or NICU.

What forms of nursing brings the greatest satisfaction in meeting the needs of their patients and society?

This really depends on the individual nurse. Each have their passion, and each have many specialties to choose from. What is satisfying to one may not be to another. This does not make any one of these choices less important than the other. Look below at the list of possibilities. Each nurse should pursue the area that fulfills his/her needs, wants, and desires, and with this - I believe - will promote a nurse who is more efficient, proficient, and productive which benefits the patients being served. Some specialties in nursing are as follows. Ambulatory care nurses Critical care nurses Emergency, or trauma, nurses Transport nurses Holistic nurses Hospice and palliative care nurses Infusion nurses Long- term care nurses Medical-surgical nurses Occupational health nurses Perianesthesia nurses Perioperative nurses Psychiatric-mental health nurses Radiology nurses Transplant nurses Intellectual and developmental disabilities nurses Diabetes management nurses HIV/AIDS nurses Oncology nurses Wound, ostomy, and continence nurses Cardiovascular nurses Dermatology nurses Gastroenterology nurses Gynecology nurses Nephrology nurses Neuroscience nurses Ophthalmic nurses Orthopedic nurses Otorhinolaryngology nurses Respiratory nurses Urology nurses neonatal nurses Nurse practitioners (minimum requirement of a master's degree) Forensics nurses Infection control nurses Nurse administrators Legal nurse Nurse informaticists Registered nurses (RNs), regardless of specialty or work setting, treat patients, educate patients and the public about various medical conditions, and provide advice and emotional support to patients' family members. RNs record patients' medical histories and symptoms, help perform diagnostic tests and analyze results, operate medical machinery, administer treatment and medications, and help with patient follow-up and rehabilitation.

Lizards don't exactly look after their babies. When a baby lizard hatches out of its egg it is already self-sufficient, so it doesn't need an adult to look after it.
