From the National Association of Neonatal Nurses:
National Neonatal Nurses Day is celebrated every September 15. The day was established in 2000 by the National Association of Neonatal Nurses (NANN). On this day, members of the neonatal community honor nurse colleagues and show their pride in being a neonatal nurse.
This day provides an opportunity to celebrate the hard work and dedication of neonatal nurses and the NANN community. NANN would like to honor all neonatal nurses for the life-long impact you have on neonates and their families. These contributions to the tiniest patients make a difference that lasts a lifetime.
Those of you on the neonatal frontlines know better than anyone that neonatal health takes the effort of every members of a committed nursing and healthcare staff, as well as dedicated family members. This year’s Neonatal Nurses’ Day theme, “We’re all in this together.” celebrates all the critical components of a neonatal care team.
No matter what role you play, your contributions and commitment to the tiniest of patients makes a difference that lasts a lifetime. On this day, throughout the week, and at NANN’s upcoming Annual Educational Conference, we celebrate YOU! Thank you for being such an integral part of the neonatal community and for all your efforts – big and small – for the tiniest patients.
