Product Details

Neonatal nurses provide care and support for newborns and their families from birth and initial hospitalization through discharge and early follow-up, and sometimes longer. Medical and technological breakthroughs and concomitant practice innovations, however, have expanded and diversified the population served by these specialized practitioners so that it now includes infants during the first 2 years of life who have complex healthcare needs related to prematurity or critical illnesses or conditions. Continuing a tradition of collaboration, the National Association of Neonatal Nurses and the American Nurses Association have updated and expanded the 2004 edition, producing a concise guide to contemporary neonatal nursing practice at all practice levels and in all settings.

The publication elaborates on the who, what, where, when, why, and how of neonatal nursing practice. It discusses the 16 practice standards to which all RNs in neonatal nursing are held accountable, offering a set of specific competencies that serve as evidence of minimal compliance with each standard. It provides a comprehensive context for understanding and using the standards by addressing these aspects of neonatal nursing practice: its assumptions, characteristics, environments and settings, education and training requirements, key issues and trends, and ethical and conceptual bases.

Although primarily for neonatal nursing practitioners, educators, students, and others in the nursing profession, the volume is also aimed at other professionals: healthcare providers, researchers and scholars, employers, insurers, lawyers, regulators, policy makers, and stakeholders.
