Spotlight on Nursing

Special Edition:

Neonatal Network May/June 2020

The SickKids NICU NNPs have recently written articles to comprise a special edition of the peer-reviewed nursing journal, Neonatal Network.

As the sole contributors to the full May/June 2020 edition, and given the diverse and rich expertise they have developed through the complex patient population at SickKids, those chose 5 different subtopics to develop the theme of neonatal neurocritical care.
