NICUniversity is a web-based medical education center for nurses, nurse practitioners, physicians, respiratory therapists, and pharmacists, offering continuing education (CE) credits through the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME). The NICUniversity mission is to be an educational and informational resource for neonatologists and other members of the neonatology health care team.
NANN and NICUniversity have partnered to create The Nursing Corner for Nurses and Nurse Practitioners, which provides timely, relevant, and diverse CE to meet the needs of neonatal nurses at all levels and in all roles. Lecture topics that have been posted as a result of cooperation between NANN and NICUniversity include pain, respiratory, nutrition, sepsis, pathophysiology of NPO, cue-based feeding, heart failure, PDA management, speaking to parents, and necrotizing enterocolitis.
Other features offered on the site are neonatology news with articles about discoveries, innovations, studies in the field of neonatology and a calendar of events. The NICUniversity site will continually evolve, being as dynamic as the nurses in our field and the practice of neonatal nursing itself.
