Martin’s Answer

You're on the path to completing the same RN program as everyone else, but with an exciting twist - you might have the opportunity to choose electives in the fascinating field of neonatology, or at the very least, pediatrics. Once you step off the graduation stage, you might just find yourself landing an entry-level role in neonatology. But don't worry if that doesn't happen right away. Pediatrics or OB/GYN are great alternatives to consider. In addition, consider enriching your knowledge by taking some external courses in neonatology. Remember, this advice is based on the U.S. system and might not be directly applicable in your country. To get the most accurate advice tailored to your situation, it would be beneficial to reach out to a neonatology nurse in Peru. Keep going, you're doing great!

Hi Daniella!

I did some research on how to become a nurse in Peru, and I could not find much about it (the structure of nursing programs often varies from country to country), but it says there are a few bachelor's, master's, and doctorate (PhD) programs in nursing. I would look for volunteer or work (does not have to be clinical) opportunities in neonatology or pediatrics, such as working as a medical records clerk in an office, as a receptionist or greeter, volunteering at a children's camp, or attending pregnancy-related seminars as a prospective nursing student! After graduation, start applying for jobs in neonatology. Still, as Martin said, it's a super specialized area, so you may have to work as a general nurse for a bit before being successfully offered a job in the NICU or newborn nursery!!
