Customer Signin


The National Association of Neonatal Nurses believes that research must be used to drive the practice of neonatal nursing. This means the organization shall provide avenues for members to become more active in reading, understanding, conducting, and practicing research and evidence-based neonatal care.

You are at the forefront of the research needed to continuously improve the state of neonatal care. Because of this, NANN has taken a great step forward with the following new and existing initiatives.

NANN Research Institute

The Research Institute was formed to support you and the neonatal community at large by providing greater access to and assistance in developing and advancing your knowledge and skills, regardless of your level of education or experience and research training. The creation of a research agenda, programming and dissemination, mentoring, and grants campaign are all a part of the Research Institute. The Research Institute is governed by a Steering Council, made up of NANN volunteers who represent the interests of research in neonatal nursing.

NANN gratefully acknowledges the funding provided by the following companies and Charter Members of the Research Institute:

Philips Mother and Child Care Abbott Nutrition
Mead Johnson Nutrition March of Dimes

This support enables NANN to offer you the following current and future programs:

Research Summit

The deadline for NANN's 10th Annual Research Summit abstract submissions is now closed.

If you have any question, please contact This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it , NANN Education Manager.

The Research Summit is made possible through an educational grant from Mead Johnson Nutrition.


Small Grants Program

The Small Grants Mentee/Mentor Program is now accepting applications from all NANN members with an interest in furthering their research interests and/or initiating their own research study or evidence-based practice (EBP) project. The program provides an avenue for connecting those with little or no research background with experienced researchers to enhance their skills and promote the success of the research study or EBP project. 

The deadline to submit a grant application has passed.

If you are selected to receive one of the three Small Grants, you are required to attend NANN’s Annual Educational Conference, October 22-25, 2015 in Dallas, TX to be recognized and receive your grant.

You are also required to present your findings at the 2017 NANN Annual Educational Conference.
