Affiliated Association


Founded in 1984, the National Association of Neonatal Nurses (NANN) represents the community of neonatal nurses who provide evidence-based care to high-risk neonatal patients.  NANN is recognized as the expert voice, the advocate and leading change agent that influences standards of practice through advocacy, collaboration, and leadership.  NANN fosters advanced nursing practice and increases public awareness and understanding of the specialty.  Its new membership division, the National Association of Neonatal Nurse Practitioners (NANNP) gives nurse practitioners a distinct voice within NANN to address their career development needs and provides representation for neonatal advanced practice issues in the larger nursing community.
