Neonatal nurse training is usually offered at the master’s degree level, meaning you will have to take the prerequisite college courses before applying to graduate school. Like other post-undergraduate medical degrees, what is important is not the undergraduate major, but the completion of prerequisite courses, such as general biology, physiology, microbiology, psychology, neurobiology, and biochemistry. You should look into the specific requirements of each school that interests you. Also, graduate medical programs often require a certain number of volunteer hours at hospitals and clinics before you apply.
