Nursing has long been a lucrative career, with nursing jobs paying up to $90,000 a year, according to the National Center for Health Statistics.
But what happens when a child is born with a genetic disorder and it means that they need a newborn nurse?
The average neonatal nursery pays just under $80,000 for the position.
The average hospital job pays between $100,000 and $120,000, and the average state hospital job can be as much as $150,000.
While neonatal nurses are in demand, there are still many other jobs out there for those looking to hone their nursing skills, according in a CNNMoney.
