Newborn Foundations

UPDATE: As healthcare workers dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic, your health and safety is important to us. In order to protect our healthcare teams by social distancing, we will maintain classes but have limited seating. 

The Neonatal Core Curriculum  Series spans three weeks.

  • Class 1: Newborn Foundations (needs to be completed before Care of the Neonate)
  • Class 2, Week 1: Care of the Neonate 1
  • Class 2, Week 2: Care of the Neonate 2

Newborn Foundations provides an essential foundation for any nurse or clinician who is new to providing care for newborns.

This class focuses on physical assessment; complications while transitioning to extrauterine life; late preterm considerations; breastfeeding and pumping; neonatal abstinence syndrome (NAS); developmental care basics/non-pharmacologic pain management; preparing families for discharge, and an overview of car seat safety.
