Neonatal Nurse Practitioners


NNPs1Within our 45-bed, Level III/IV/ECMO NICU and transitional care nursery, innovative healthcare professionals work together for the benefit of critically ill infants. Key to this team are our Neonatal Nurse Practitioners. We maintain an ECMO program, operate a well established neonatal transport system, and have active cardiac and pediatric surgery programs.

nnplpOur NNPs provide care to a patient population presenting with all medical and surgical problems, including congenital heart disease and ECMO. The patient population extends from newborns requiring normal newborn care to the critically ill and/or premature newborns. Our large referral area brings babies from both rural and urban communities.

As an active academic medical center with trainees in pediatric and other medical and nursing specialties, the NNP contributes to education of residents and students (medical and nursing) and is encouraged to participate in research and quality initiatives as interested. The NNP also follows our special VLBW population, providing exciting opportunities for medical and nursing education, leadership and research, multidisciplinary collaboration and individualized patient and family contact.
