ANN is pleased to support efforts to enhance nursing knowledge and its application to practice by making ANN members aware of opportunities to participate in institutional review board (IRB) approved research studies.

Call for Survey Participants:
The Role of the Neonatal Nurse Practitioner in the Community Hospital

You are invited to participate in a study of the neonatal nurse practitioner (NNP) role and responsibilities in Level I, II and III newborn care units. If you have already taken this survey, we appreciate your help in describing your practice setting.

The traditional model of the NNP practice is typically described as the one most commonly seen in the tertiary care Level IV NICU. There is an emerging trend to utilize the NNP in Level I, II, and III newborn care centers. The purpose of this study is to learn more about NNP practice, responsibilities, and limitations in these Level I, II, and III units.

If you are a NNP and currently practice or have practiced in the last 5 years, in a Level I, II or III newborn care unit, you are eligible to participate in this study. It should take less than 10 minutes to complete the survey. This is a completely voluntary, anonymous survey. No personal information will be obtained and there is no link to you electronically. There is no compensation for participation in this survey. Completing this survey indicates your consent to participate in this survey.
