We need a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit Registered Nurse for a Contract order in Lufkin, TX. Neonatal Intensive Care Nurses care for premature and critically ill newborns in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) of a hospital.

Neonatal Nurses monitor newborns’ condition, administer necessary medication, record progress and recovery, and provide comfort to babies in distress. Neonatal nurses typically work under the direction of a physician caring for the newborn, helping to educate new mothers about their baby’s conditions, breastfeeding, and answering their questions.
