From the Editors for 2016(3) –

Neonatal nosocomial infections are defined as infections acquired in the NICU following admission for another reason. Like other hospital setting nosocomial infections in the NICU can originate from multiple sources such but our extensive use of invasive devices is a major contributing factor. In this issue we report on the experience of two units' work on Central line–associated bloodstream infections (CLABSIs) and Ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP). The experience of our colleagues can help everyone to re-evaluate our bundles of care to reduce and eliminate nosocomial infections. ​

In addition, we hope you will explore the new NANN position statement on the most current recommendations for maintaining and demonstrating continued NNP competence.
