National Neonatal Nurses Day—Celebrating You!
National Neonatal Nurses Day is celebrated every year on September 15. Established in 2000 by the National Association of Neonatal Nurses (NANN), members of the neonatal community use this day to honor their nurse colleagues and show their pride in being a neonatal nurse.
National Neonatal Nurses Day provides an opportunity to celebrate the hard work and dedication of neonatal nurses as well as the NANN community. Your contributions to the tiniest patients make a difference that lasts a lifetime for neonates and their families.
NANN continues to provide a supportive, engaging, and vibrant professional community with access to unmatched resources that help neonatal nurses focus on providing the very best patient care.
2017 National Neonatal Nurses Day - We Save Babies!
The 2017 Neonatal Nurses Day theme had a very unexpected origin. It started in late 2016 at NANN's 32nd Annual Conference in Palm Springs when attendees were connecting to the conference wifi on their many devices. The password to connect was "WeSaveBabies" and our attendees instantly loved it! Who knew a simple wifi password could have such an impact on our attendees? Nurses continued to reference the phrase throughout conference and it took on a life of its own. We knew it was perfect for Neonatal Nurses Day!
We're thrilled to introduce "We Save Babies" as our 2017 theme for Neonatal Nurses Day. Everyday, thousands of neonatal nurses work tirelessly to save the smallest and most fragile patients. You save babies everyday and the work you do matters to so many parents, patients, and their families.
