A neonatal nurse gains his or her title by starting as a nursing student. Some employers require only a two-year Associates degree in Nursing, while others may require a Bachelors of Nursing degree - a four year college degree. Based upon the job description, nurses may require further training in the level of neonatal care to fullfill the rquirements.

You are required to take a certification test to be a registered nurse. This requires a minimum of two years in college, usually in an AS program. You could easily do this at a local community college. When you get certification to become a nurse, you can look at the local jobs in your area and specialize in newborns.

The first step in becoming a newborn or neonate nurse is to become a Registered Nurse. To become a Registered Nurse you need to take prerequisite courses at your local community college such as Anatomy, Physiology, Microbilogy and Chemistry. Upon passing these classes you can apply to a Registered Nurse program found at most local junior colleges.

In order to become a nurse, you need a degree from an accredited college. One has to master the basic nursing program requirements before they can move into specialties. Talk to a councilor for the school you intend on going to and they can point you in the right direction depending on your goals.

There are 2 educational programs for entry into practice as an RN - a 2 year AA programs at your community college, or a 4 year BSN program. Upon graduation from either program, you must then pass the nursing licensing test. Once this is completed, you can apply for a position in the newborn nursery.

The best way to become a newborn nursery nurse is to request clinicals in that area. If none are available in your clinical education then you would have to wait unril after graduation and then take classes such as PALS which is advanced life support for pediactrics,or NALS which is for newborns.
