From the Editors

In this issue of Advances in Neonatal Care we have two important manuscripts that we want to bring to your attention. The first is a report of NANN’s Neonatal Nurse Practitioners (NNP) Workforce Survey. NNPs are integral to the care of high-risk infants and their families. The goal of this survey was to better understand the characteristics of the NNP workforce to identify areas that would need to be addressed to ensure the future of the workforce. I am sure that the National Association of Neonatal Nurse Practitioners would welcome your idea to help keep our NNP workforce intact. The second manuscript is a reprint from the American Academy of Pediatrics regarding the new changes for instructors of Neonatal Resuscitation Programs. Please make note of the changes in the 7th Edition NRP that will impact all instructors. Finally, this issue includes all of the research abstracts (online only) from the annual NANN Research Summit in April of this year. To encourage these authors and all of our readers to publish their work, this issue’s editorial is focused on writing the research manuscript. Thanks for reading Advances in Neonatal Care.

This Advances in Neonatal Care article shows that infants who receive this intervention grow better and also more rapidly develop the muscle control needed for successful feeding.
