Neonatal Nurses

Outlook

The U.S. Department of Labor predicts that employment for all registered nurses will grow faster than the average through 2024. In addition, nursing specialties should be in great demand in the future. The outlook for neonatal nurses is very good, especially for those with master's degrees or higher. According to the National Association of Neonatal Nurses, positions should be available due to downsizing in previous years. These cutbacks have led to a decrease in the number of nurses choosing advanced practice education. Also, the average neonatal nurse today is middle-aged and may be moving on to less stressful areas of nursing and eventually retiring from the field.
