Neonatal Medical Outreach

The following outline our medical education outreach opportunities and programs.  We provide classes on the Blank Children's Hospital campus, and also provide classes on your campus:


This program provides education for health care professionals on stabilization of the newborn using the mnemonic S.T.A.B.L.E. to promote the recall of necessary information. Pre- and post-testing is available.

Neonatal Resuscitation Program (NRP)

This program trains health care professionals in resuscitation skills specific to the newborn as outlined by the American Academy of Pediatrics and the American Heart Association. The course is taught by a neonatal nurse from Blank Children's Hospital.

Neonatal Topics

A number of general topics on newborn issues are available including system by system education, assessment and management, common disease processes, stabilization, developmental care, family-centered care and physical and gestational age assessment. Specific topics can be discussed upon request.

Perinatal Continuing Education Program (PCEP)

This is an educational self-study program designed to teach bedside care of obstetrical and neonatal patients for health care professionals. This program includes clinical competencies as well as pre- and post-testing.

Visiting Nurse Experience

The Visiting Nurse Experience offers you the opportunity to visit us in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). Our goal is for you to experience how we deliver care for newborns, equip you with new skills to complement your own and increase your confidence. For more information, read our handout.
