Newborn Care Specialist Vs Registered Nurse
Newborn Care Specialists are trained professionals who have completed a Newborn Care course that aligns with the practices of the American Academy of Pediatrics. Newborn Care Specialists are also CPR certified and support your baby in establishing safe and healthy sleep habits.
Our team of Registered Nurses have completed an accredited Nursing college degree and have successfully passed their boards. With this background in medicine, our team of nurses is able to provide specialized care for your family, whether it be for your little one or you. Our team of Registered Nurses receives extensive training in caring for premies, newborns with additional oxygen needs, newborns who have Nasogastric and Gastric tubes, cardiac conditions requiring monitoring, birth injuries, cleft lips and palates, and much more!
Once your baby has reached a point in which they do not require supplemental oxygen, electronic monitoring and advanced tubes and lines have been removed, we begin a seamless transition of care from the Registered Nurse to the Newborn Care Specialist. During this transition, the Registered Nurse and Newborn Care Specialist work together to establish goals and create a plan for your baby. During the time that your baby spends with the Newborn Care Specialist, they remain in contact with the Nurse, which allows there to be continuous communication which improves your baby’s transition from one caregiver to another.
