The NCS Market – Time for a Reality Check

Join members of the NCSA to talk about the current market for Newborn Care Specialists. What is the demand for this type of care? What do current pay rates look like? What part does geography, experience, certifications and training play in getting jobs and the rate the NCS is paid. What about 24/7 or just daytime work?
