Usually it takes 2 or 4 years of university or college education to be prepared as an RN. It depends on whether students attend a bachelor's- or associate-degree program. Neonatal nursing programs are part of continuing professional development. The type and length of nursing experience also varies from one institution to another, but many require no previous experience. It depends on whether positions are plentiful and if a scarcity of qualified nurses exists in that particular area of the country.

When an individual graduates and has obtained some experience as an RN in a neonatal intensive care unit (the National Association of Neonatal Nurses recommends 2 years), he/she might want to consider going to graduate school to become a neonatal nurse practitioner or clinical nurse specialist. Neonatal nurses courses contain a range of modules, which specialize in different aspects of neonatal nursing. After graduating, students have to take the state licensing exam to become an BSN.
