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.
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.
An estimated 15 million babies are born too early every year. That is more than 1 in 10 babies. Approximately 1 million children die each year due to complications of preterm birth (1). Many survivors face a lifetime of disability, including learning disabilities and visual and hearing problems.
