I have never done an annotated bibliography so I honestly have no idea where to start. I want to research something to do with my major, nursing, but I am not sure how I can narrow it down. I am leaning towards either nurses in pediatric care or the importance of neonatal nurses in hospitals. I want to get my nursing degree here at ECU and maybe specialize in working with babies. A neonatal nurse has the joy of working with newborn babies who are born with special needs such as premature birth, birth defects, or babies that require surgery right away. These babies are taken to a special unit in the hospital and tended to. I am very interested in learning more about this career in particular since I would like to pursue one or the other some day.
The sources that would be most helpful on this topic would be up-to-date articles on the Internet and articles on the libraryís database. There are not many other options besides books that are specifically about neonatal nursing in the library, which I will try and look for. From the information I gather, I will look specifically for the main job of a neonatal nurse and how they are needed at hospitals. Babies are born every minute of every day, so there is definitely a need for these types of nurses. I want to know how soon the babies are detected as unhealthy and where they are taken to exactly to receive care. I also want to find out what a neonatal nurse does next to a doctor in a hospital scene. I know they work under them, but what exactly do they do?
At the library session, I REALLY need to listen closely since I have never written a paper like this. I hope to find tips on where to get the best information about this topic since it is in the medical field, which varies every year due to technology. Overall, I hope to learn the basic structure of the annotated bibliography and how to put the information in order.
