Eva Dye, Nancy Wells
BACKGROUND: Neonatal nurse practitioner (NNP) workload is not well studied, and metrics specific to NNP practice are lacking. Factors such as changes in resident duty hours, increasing neonatal intensive care unit admissions, and a shortage of NNPs contribute to NNP workload. Increased workload has been shown to be detrimental to providers and can affect quality of care. PURPOSE: This study quantified NNP workload using a subjective workload metric, the NASA Task Load Index, and a newly developed objective workload metric specific to NNP practice...

Variation in relative brain size among adult mammals is produced by different patterns of brain and body growth across ontogeny. Fetal development plays a central role in generating this diversity, and aspects of prenatal physiology such as maternal relative metabolic rate, altriciality, and placental morphology have been proposed to explain allometric differences in neonates and adults. Primates are also uniquely encephalized across fetal development, but it remains unclear when this pattern emerges during development and whether it is common to all primate radiations...

BACKGROUND: As an integral member of a healthcare team, neonatal nurse practitioners (NNPs) provide care in a variety of settings that include but are not limited to all levels of inpatient care, transport, acute and chronic care settings; delivery rooms; and outpatient care settings. Anecdotal evidence indicates that responsibilities, practice environment, and workload vary widely between regions and practice settings. PURPOSE: Historically, the supply of neonatal nurse practitioners has rarely met the demand for services, although needs vary by region at any given time...

Pneumothorax is a potentially life-threatening condition in a neonate, requiring emergency intervention. The neonatal nurse practitioner (NNP) must be able to respond quickly and competently to prevent significant potential complications or death. The purpose of this practice improvement project was to implement procedure review for NNP competency maintenance in needle thoracostomy for a tension pneumothorax and to evaluate the effectiveness of procedure review on competency through simulation performance. Eighteen NNPs participated (procedure review = 10, no review = 8)...

Neonatal nurse practitioners (NNPs) have a crucial role in the management and care of critically ill newborns and infants in the neonatal intensive care unit. Their role responsibilities range from daily management of care, oversight of unit and bedside education, execution of advanced procedures, and attendance at high-risk deliveries. During their educational program, there is a mix of didactic and clinical training. To ensure that their graduates are able to competently care for neonatal patients in the ever-advancing neonatal world, the NNP program at the University of Texas Medical Branch-Galveston (UTMB), has implemented simulation-based training into every clinical course...

REVIEW
Julie Hatch
Neonatal nurse practitioners (NNPs) have played a significant role in providing medical coverage to many of the country's Level III neonatal intensive care units (NICUs). Extensive education and experience are required for a nurse practitioner (NP) to become competent in caring for these critically ill newborns. The NNP can take this competence and experience and expand her role out into the community Level I nurseries. Clinical care of the infants and close communication with parents, pediatricians, and the area tertiary center provide a community service with the goal of keeping parents and babies together in the community hospital without compromising the health of the baby...

In the United States, 20% to 30% of the employed population does shift work. Neonatal nurse practitioners are a part of this group. Yet, there are no guidelines in place regarding shift length. Fatigue among shift workers is well documented and carries risks to both patients and health care providers. It is crucial to analyze this problem so that the neonatal nurse practitioner profession can move forward with establishing guidelines for practice; so safe, quality care to patients is assured and the health as well as the role satisfaction of the neonatal nurse practitioner is optimized...

OBJECTIVE: We sought to determine the distribution and scope of practice of the neonatal nurse practitioner (NNP) workforce across the United States. METHODS: To determine distribution, we used counts of certified NNPs from the National Certification Corp (Chicago, IL). We calculated state NNP/child population ratios as the number of NNPs divided by the state population 0 to 17 years of age. We calculated NNP/NICU bed ratios as the number of NNPs divided by the total number of NICU beds per state...
