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.
Neonatal Nurses Day provides an opportunity to celebrate the hard work and dedication of neonatal nurses and the NANN community. On this day, we celebrate the gifts that neonatal nurses bring to healthcare; NANN would like to honor all neonatal nurses for the life-long impact you have on neonates and their families. Your contributions and commitment to the tiniest patients makes a difference that lasts a lifetime.
NANN continues to provide you with a supportive, engaging and vibrant professional community with access to unmatched resources which help you focus on taking care of your patients.
This year, NANN encourages all neonatal nurses and their units to "Love What You Do." Your work and dedication in the lives of helping neonates is one of a kind. On this day, and week, we celebrate YOU—the neonatal nurse who makes an impact in the lives your tiny patients and their family. NANN thanks you for being a part of the neonatal community.
