In a recent article in Professional Nursing Today entitled – Nursing Leadership –A looming crisis in Africa the author states “ The current and future demands of the dynamic healthcare environment need aggressive nursing leadership integration in all healthcare settings for an effective response to the local and global demands of the healthcare system”.
Neonatal Nursing is a small but critical field of nursing. It needs strong passionate knowledgeable leaders to advocate for quality patient care and optimal outcomes for its vulnerable patient population. Neonatal nurses need to be knowledgeable in evidence based care in order to provide clinical leadership and advocacy. They also need to have confidence and knowledge in health systems in order to engage at all levels to advocate for the role of neonatal nurses and the needs of the neonate. Leadership is also required in order to mentor and train upcoming nurses, retain them in the neonatal field and meld together a strong united team.
This cannot be achieved without leaders who are passionate about neonatal nursing and the care of neonates and who continuously strive to improve quality of care, training, clinical environments, research and education.
Join us as we present topics that will inspire and challenge you both clinically and as neonatal nursing leaders. Mix with other passionate neonatal nurses, leaders in the neonatal field and interact with trade representatives as you allow your passion for neonates to ignite! Consider extending your stay and soaking up some sun on the golden beaches of Umhlanga or Ballito.
