About Us

Neonatal nurses care for sick and small babies in their first month of life – the most vulnerable time in their lives.

This requires highly specialised and skilled care to ensure these precious babies grow up with the best possible quality of life.

Our Vision/Mission

NNASA is committed to equipping neonatal nurses with knowledge, skills and exposure to latest research, practice and national and international programmes. We also believe strongly in recognising, highlighting and rewarding nurses who are an example to us all through their devotion to care, excellence and service.

Defined levels of emergency obstetric care (EmOC) and standardised measurement of “signal functions” has improved tracking of maternal care in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). Levels of newborn care, particularly for small and sick newborns, and associated signal functions are still not consistently defined or tracked.
