2015 National Neonatal Nurses Day

This past Tuesday, September 15, was the 16th annual National Neonatal Nurses Day. The National Association of Neonatal Nurses (NANN) established this day in 2000 to give members of the neonatal community the opportunity to offer neonatal nurses their gratitude and support.

Many neonatal nurses are extremely dedicated to their jobs and work tirelessly to care for the babies in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU).
