Nursery RNs provide hands-on care of infants in the nursery. They may also care for a patient in the ICU or NICU, or in another area of the hospital, as directed by the physician. Nursery RNs work to facilitate the transition from hospital to home by caring for infants and teaching parents how to care for their infant. Nursery RNs provide information about child growth and development, feeding techniques, rest and sleep schedules, and other aspects of parenting. They also teach parents how to identify developmental milestones and when to call their doctor with concerns.
